Sopore, May 01 : Sopore’s Sadpura Dangerpora villagers have complained that their area is yet to get piped water facility for the last four decades.

Talking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), residents said that the unavailability of clean water has given rise to water borne diseases in the village.

“The water testing laboratory declared all wells/ponds in the village contaminated and is yet to solve the issue,” said residents who staged a protest at Press Colony Srinagar.

They said that ‘Har Ghar Nal Sy Jal’ claim of the government has fallen flat as they are suffering in absence of drinking water supply.

“We are being forced to fetch water and drink contaminated water which is not safe for drinking,” they added.

An official pleading anonymity acknowledged lack of water in the area and said that work is in progress to resolve grievances of the locals.

Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) Jal Shakhti department Sopore Manzoor Ahmed did not respond to the repeated phone calls—(KNO)
