Pulwama: The residents of Nehama village in Kakapora hamlet of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district are without drinking water for past two months, locals alleged Saturday.
The residents of Wangan Bagh area of Nehama said that two months back the Rural Development Department started constructing a drain in the area.
They said while digging to construct the drain during night, water pipeline of the area got damaged but since then they are without water supply as the pipeline is yet to be repaired.
They said that even authorities have failed to complete the drain due to unknown reasons thereby keeping the water supply defunct.
“We have been suffering in absence of water and the women folk has to cover long distances in order to fetch potable water,” they said.
“We have brought this issue in notice of concerned authorities several times but to no avail and no step is being taken in this regard,” they added.
They requested higher ups to look into the matter and take immediate steps for restoration of water supply in the area so that locals won’t suffer anymore.
