The inhabitants of these villages said we are facing water shortage from the last two weeks and nobody bothers to look into the crises as there is no water to drink, cook and wash.
Meanwhile, the residents appealed to the higher authorities to look into the matter and restore water supply in these areas as soon as possible so that they ll not face more inconvenience.
