Hamza Shahbaz presided over a late-night meeting at the Circuit House Bahawalpur on Saturday night and ordered immediate action to tackle the water crisis in the Cholistan.
A decision was made to begin a pilot project of solar water pumps in the Cholistan at the request of the CM, according to a statement issued here.
The CM oversaw the scientific measurement of wildlife, particularly birds, in the Lal Suhanra National Park and the production of a tourism-oriented video.
He ordered the DG Wildlife to submit a report within ten days. He instructed the use of male and female students from various educational institutions to accomplish this goal.
The Cholistan has an average annual temperature of 28.33 degrees Celsius (82.99 degrees Fahrenheit), with July being the highest with an average daily temperature of 38.5 degrees Celsius (101.3 degrees Fahrenheit).
When there is a drought, summer temperatures can reach 46 °C (115 °F) and can even reach 50 °C (122 °F).
In the winter, temperatures can fall to as low as 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius). In July and August, Cholistan receives an average of 180mm of rain, but droughts are common. Toba, a system of seasonal natural pools, and Kund, a system of artificial pools, both gather water. Subsoil water is often salty and unsuitable for most plant growth but can be found to depths of 30–40 meters.
