Women protesters blocked Srinagar-Baramulla highway at Zangam Pattan for about one and half hour against Public Health Engineering department, reports said.
The protesters were raising slogans against the non availability of drinking water in Buran village of Pattan.
“The administration befooled us from time to time as they promise to restore the water supply within no time, we are not able to send our children school due to the dearth of water,” the protesters said.
Meanwhile the officials of the Pattan sub district managed to motivate the protesters to end their protest. The officials arranged a water tanker which they said will serve the hamlet on a daily basis till the water supply is restored.
