Scores of drought-stricken residents of Achhro Thar, an extended part of Thar proper, have demanded the Sindh government should immediately supply them water and fodder for their starving livestock and relief goods for the equally affected humans. Villagers as well as their cows, goats and camels had been braving acute shortage of fodder and water since 2011, resulting in diseases in many animals and deaths of others. They said that about 20 per cent of the population had migrated to canal-irrigated areas along with their livestock and those who did not leave were facing shortages of food and water.
