Tangdar villagers face acute water scarcity

Appeals authorities to fulfill their demands

 


Srinagar, Jun 26: The residents living in Tangdar villages of north Kashmir are up in arms against the Public Health Engineering (PHE) department for failing to provide adequate water supply to them.
The villages including Sadpora and Dhani are facing immense hardships in absence of the water.
They said that the authorities are forcing the womenfolk to walk almost three kilometers to fetch water from Nallah Qazinag.
The residents said that the 22 households are without water from last 12 days but the authorities are ignoring their plights.
They said that in Bukhian Tangdar, Sangdi Nawan Gabrah, the residents are without water from last three months.
Niyaz Mohammad, a local said that due to rupturing of pipeline, the residents are not getting water from past three months but the authorities have failed to repair the pipeline since then, leaving the residents to lurch at large.
Exen PHE, Rajinder Singh told Kashmir News Service (KNS) that they are sending water tanks regularly to villages and the problem will be resolved very soon once the pipeline will be sanctioned. (KNS)
