Srinagar, Jun 15: The residents of several Pulwama areas are up in arms against the Public Health Engineering (PHE) department for ‘failing to provide adequate water supply in their villages from past three weeks’.
Accusing the authorities for ignoring their plights, the residents of several villages including Trichil, Nowpora, Lasipora, Tamulhal, Litter, Wasoora and Panzgom areas of Pulwama district here have demanded immediate redressal of their genuine grievances.
The residents told KNS that acute water scarcity has hit their villages from past three weeks while the officials are paying no heed over their sufferings.
“We approached to the Exen in this regard but unfortunately all in vein. All the assurances given by the officials proved hoax,” the residents 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.
The inhabitants later appealed the higher ups of PHE department to look into the matter and redress their genuine grievances as soon as possible.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) G M Dar told KNS that he will look into the matter. (KNS)
