Mendhar villagers protest against water scarcity

The villagers, including women, from Mankote area of Mendhar sub division Tuesday staged a protest demonstration against prevailing water scarcity in the area.

Protest was staged outside Tehsil office Mankote by blocking the main road.

The villagers said, “No water supply has been made in our area for last two weeks and everyone is suffering badly.”

They said, “Every official of Jal Shakti department has been approached to get our water supply restored but no one is paying attention to our grievance.”

Later, Naib Tehsildar Mankote and police team rushed to the spot and pacified the protesters by assuring them about the restoration of water supply at the earliest.

Upon this assurance, the protest was called off.
