Srinagar, Apr 27: The residents of Mawer Langate areas of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district are up in arms against the Public Health Engineering (PHE) department for ‘failing to provide adequate water supply in their villages from past two weeks’.

The residents told KNS that acute water scarcity has hit their villages from past two weeks while the officials are paying no heed over their sufferings.
“We approached to the higher ups in this regard but unfortunately all in vein. All the assurances given by the officials proved hoax,” the residents according to the KNS correspondent said.
They said that the authorities must not ignore their plights and should take the measures in this regard at earliest so that the villagers here could feel a sigh of relief.
