Several parts of Old City are currently facing water crisis with locals accusing the PHE department of being indifferent towards their problems.
“It has been 3 days now and we are still living without water,” a local said. “We don’t even receive water from tankers.”
Accusing government of brushing aside their problems, the locals say: “We have been facing hardships due to water scarcity.”
The residents have appealed to the Minister Public Health Engineering Sukhnandan Kumar and MoS PHE Abdul Majid Padder to look to the matter urgently.
Despite repeated requests the Chief Engineer PHE couldn’t be contacted.
