Lahore: The Punjab government is putting efforts to allocate its shares to South Punjab amid ongoing shortage of water in the Kharif season, media reports said.

This was informed in a review meeting on water supply in canals of South Punjab which was held here Wednesday under the chairmanship of Secretary Agriculture Iftikhar Ali Sahu and Secretary Irrigation, Punjab, Wasif Khursheed, reports The News International.

On this occasion, Secretary Agriculture Iftikhar Ali Sahoo told the newspaper that water supply in the canals of South Punjab is very important to achieve the cotton production target. In the three divisions of South Punjab, Bahawalpur, Multan and Dera Ghazi Khan, more than 4 million acres have been brought under cotton cultivation and now water supply is very important at this critical stage of better management of the crop.

He said that the promise of canal water supply during the cotton season is being fulfilled and for this, the Departments of Agriculture and Irrigation are working together.
