Srinagar, Nov 30: Residents of Basharat Colony area in Gulshan Nagar locality here have expressed resentment over failure of PHE department to augment water supply system in the area.
The locals through Intizamia Committee Masjid Gousia said many houses in the area are without piped drinking water supply.
“In absence of piped drinking water supply we have to fetch water from adjoining areas in bone chilling cold. We have been demanding that pipelines should be laid from house no 35 onwards so that all leftover houses are covered under drinking water supply scheme,” they said.
“We make a fervent appeal to Chief Engineer Jal Shakti department to look into the matter,” they said.
