He said that the Union would support the regular policy of tube wells which ensures lodging FIR against the zamindars and growers indulged in power pilferage as well as the feasibility report of the tube well is in the favour of regularization of tube wells and the goods are of due standard and the work is done as per the standard design and drawing of WAPDA.
