The residents of Zewar, Kishtwar, today held a strong protest demonstration against the Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department over the prevailing water crisis in the area.  

The protesters assembled on DSB road near Zewar, Kistwar, and blocked it for more than 3 hours which led to long traffic jam.

The protesters said that  the district administration and PHE department are least bothered to supply drinking water to the people of Zewar village as despite repeated requests and reminders, nothing has been done to resolve the crisis.

"We have not taken bath for last many days as there is no water in our area," the protesting people said.

They demanded action against the concerned officials for not restoring water supply in the area.    They added that the water crisis in their area is there since long but the PHE Department despite several requests has done nothing for solving the problem.

They have appealed to the concerned department to look into the matter and warned that they will intensify the stir if the issue is not resolved.
