SILLANWALI: The Sargodha DCO on Wednesday inaugurated a sewerage project, funds for which were contributed by the public and technical expertise provided by an NGO.
The pipeline laid is 450-foot long and cost Rs150,000, according to a spokesperson for the NGO, Alfalah Health Organisation. DCO Azmat Mehmood commended the organisation for its efforts and services. He also praised the people of the area, saying that such partnerships could pave the way to Pakistan becoming a great nation. Such initiatives, said the DCO, could help Sillanwali to be recognised as a role model tehsil. Mehmood said that the district administration alone did not have the resources, financial and otherwise, to meet the demands of a rapidly increasing population. Every month 8,000 children were born in Sargodha district, he said.
