Srinagar: The residents of Panzinara in the outskirts of Srinagar protested for the second day on Thusday against non-availability of drinking water in their locality.
Raising slogans against Public Health Engineering (PHE) department, scores of men and women gathered at the Highway and blocked Srinagar-Bandipora highway to press for their demands.
We are facing shortage of drinking water since long and the authorities are not hearing our genuine voice, the protesters said.
They said their women-folk have to travel a more than a kilometer to fetch drinking water.
“We won’t call off the protest unless our problem is resolved,” the protestors said.
