Several areas of the city have been reeling under severe water crisis and there has been no supply of drinking water since the last 5 days.

The areas Old Gurha, Bakshi Nagar, parts of Mahesh Pura, Shakti Nagar, Gurha and adjoining areas are the worst hit due to the crisis with people of many of these areas complaining that their area has not been supplied with drinking water since the last 5 days.

Sat Pal Singh, a resident of Old Gurha, Bakshi Nagar said that despite the matter being brought to the notice of concerned authorities, nothing has been done to supply water in their area.

It has become difficult to manage day-to-day affairs without water as we can’t take a bath, can’t wash utensils and above all do not have water to drink, he said.

“There has been absolutely no water supply in our area since the last 5 days and whatever the water stock was there in the tanks has been used up,” Sat Pal said.

Some other residents of the area said that they approached the PHE authorities over the crisis, but they told them that some repairing/maintenance work of the supply pipes has been going.

“It is strange that the repairing work has not been completed in so many days,” the people said adding that this shows the lack of concern of the department towards people’s problems. GKNN
