SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Mar 27: For the past nearly two years, the residents of Iram Colony Sector 1 Budshah Nagar had been demanding augmentation of water supply line in the area.
Nearly a month back, the authorities woke to their call and installed an additional 40 MM supply line, the residents said.
But even though the lines is yet to be commissioned, it has leaked at several places leaving the colony inundated.
“There are around 40 leaks in the 50 pipe network… We have been requesting the authorities to get the line repaired but they didn’t respond,” the residents said.
“We want water for drinking not waterlogging,” the residents quipped.
They appealed the concerned Executive Engineer Public Health Engineering department to look into the matter.
