Srinagar, Nov 05: The residents of Line Mohallah village of Shahgund here in Sonawari Belt today staged a protest demonstration and kept Shahgund Sopore road blocked for hours over water shortage against callous approach of PHE Department.

Protests lasted for hours after and no official bothered to visit the area to give assurance to the General public, said Sajad Ahmad Dar a local of shahgund.

“We are forced to take the filthy water from the nearby nallah as taps in our homes and localities have run dry. A group of women said that every day we cover a long distance to fetch water.

The residents of these the villages have appealed the PHE to look into the matter, so that the normal water supply service can be restored.
