SRINAGAR: The residents of Takanwari area of Noorbagh are up in arms against non-availability of drinking water and have appealed the authorities to take necessary measures.
According to the locals, the water pipes in the area were laid way back but the area still lacks portable water facility.
“We have brought our pleas to the notice of the concerned department many times but we were only provided assurances and in reply we got a water tanker for an area inhabited with dense population,” a group of locals told Kashmir Reader.
“The work on the water pump (reservoir) is going at snail’s pace and there is no sign of completion in near future,” they said.
The locals have requested the government to take steps so that the area with a huge population is provided with safe drinking water.
