Pakistan News Today: According to the austerity policy of the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Pakistan, the Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry announced on Saturday that the department has launched its own mineral water to reduce office costs government.
The Pakistan Research and Water Commission has prepared a bottle of 500 ml of “safe drinking water”, the minister said in a statement. He added that bottled mineral water will be used first in the Prime Minister’s office, GHQ and the parliament.
In the first phase, Chaudhry said, it will be introduced at government offices after which it will be made available to the general public. This also testifies the reliability of the water.
Chaudhry said that in the first phase, it will be submitted to the government office and will be open to the public in the second place. He further detailed that the Pak Research and Water Commission has gathered water samples from across the country for an investigation to have a sound comparison with the newly tested water. It is being said that the salt proportions in the water is being tested and the further steps are to set water treatment plants to mass-produce safe water with the help of private companies. Chaudhry said the factories will set up loans that are easy to expire in order to provide cheap and safe drinking water nationwide.
Since Fawad took over the technology department earlier this year, he has launched innovative projects such as the Moon Observation website.
Although Fawad Chaudhary has received many trolls by Pakistanis after his appointment from the Ministry of Information to the Ministry of Science and Technology, but the projects he has brought to light can’t be ignored. Offices, households and other places spend thousands to access safe drinking water in Pakistan and this step will make healthy drinking much accessible.
