NASEERABAD: Four canals including Pat Feeder Canal have been gagged in a bid to take out the water from Jafferabad areas of Dera Allah Yar and Rojhan Jamali, Geo News reported Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference here, Incharge Flood Area Naseerabad, Jafferabad Lt. Gen. Khalid Hussain said Pat Feeder Canal among four other canals has been plugged to drain out the water from Jafferabad areas of Dera Allah Yar and Rojhan Jamali.
He said the floodwater poses no threat to Osta Muhammed and Jhal Magsi, adding the rescue work has been spurred, as the affectees are being transported to Sibi and Quetta by train.
