Bandipora faces acute water shortage
Bandipora, June 14: Acute shortage of drinking water since past two months in various areas of the district has become a source of inconvenience for the people here.
Various areas of Bandipora including Nowpora, Ajas, Panar, Nathporaa, Kaloosa, Papchan, and Aythmulla are facing severe shortage of drinking water.
“The water supply scheme constructed by the Government has become defunct. Despite repeated pleas, the PHE Department had failed to restore the water supply,” the residents said.
The inhabitants said the concerned MLA had assured to take the matter of defunct water supply scheme with the concerned department. “However his assurance proved a mere hoax and people continue to suffer here,” they said.
The inhabitants accused the concerned PHE engineers of providing separate water supply lines to the activists of a political party
“We make a fervent appeal to the Chief Minster Omar Abdullah to intervene in the matter and ensure equal distribution of water among the inhabitants,” they said.
The Executive Engineer PHE Mukhtar Ahmed said the main water supply line has been blocked. “We are rectifying the problems and the normal water supply would be restored within two days,” he said.
