The Sindh government has decided to make a cut in Shandan Canal to save Dadu City from deluge. The move is aimed at diverting the Manchhar Lake water towards River Indus, reported BBC on Wednesday. Senior Minister Sindh Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq confirmed the decision, which was taken at emergency meeting at the DCO Dadu Office. He said the decision had been made to give passage to floodwaters and now there was no threat to Dadu City. However, he said Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah would give the final nod. On the other hand, the water level in Manchhar Lake has reached the dangerous level. Quoting a local correspondent, the BBC reported that in case of any intentional or unintentional breach in the lake, four union councils of Tehsil Sehwan would be inundated. And the devastation caused by Tori Embankment breach is still going on in Dadu, as one of the important towns, Khairpur Nathan Shah, is covered in deep water while Mehar is surrounded by deluge. Floodwaters gushing out of the breaches in MVN Drain have so far inundated the towns of Jhangara, Bajara, Shah Hassan and Chhant besides more than 100 villages. The situation is also worsening around the town of Naing where the installations owned by ENI, an oil exploration company, have been disconnected with rest of the country, resulting in halting the supplies. Provincial Minister Nadir Magsi says the Manchhar Lake is usually fed by the waters streaming down from the Kirthar Range, but the additional water from the river is more than its capacity. He said the protective dyke along the right bank of MVN Drain had been washed away and only the left bank embankment was still there, which had been resisting the deluge. He further warned in case water did not flow into the Manchhar Lake, the deluge would also wash away the only remaining dyke, raising the threat of inundating the town of Johi while Dadu could also face the same fate. According to Nadir Magsi, there is only one solution and that is to provide some other passage to water. In case it is not done, there would be vast scale destruction. He says the problem is that the inflow and the outflow at Manchhar Lake are not equal.
