Kahlil Tral residents face shortage of potable water
Demand attention of authorities
Pulwama: The residents of Kahlil area of Tral in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district are facing shortage of potable water since last several days, locals said Tuesday.
Residents of the area said that Kahlil consisting of 200 households are facing shortage of water since the last several days.
They said that they are facing shortage of potable water as springs in the area have dried up due to prolonged dry spell.
Mukhtra Ahmad, a local resident said that most people in the area are forced to fetch water from the other water sources that are highly contaminated.
He said that they are experiencing huge sufferings as water taps have dried up completely from last few days.
The locals said that the authorities have started sending water tanker twice every day but given the huge number of households the water is not proving enough to cater to the needs of the entire population.
The locals while thanking the district administration for providing them water through tanker services said that there is need of taping some other sources so that people won’t suffer at any cost.
They requested the higher ups to look into the matter at an earliest so that they can heave a sigh of relief.
Meanwhile, an official said that they are providing them potable water through tanker services while efforts are on to tap in other sources as well.
