Bandipora, Apr 17(KNO): The residents of Naidkhai village in Hajin tehsil of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district have accused the Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department of supplying contaminated drinking water to the village for over a month now.

The villagers told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that ever since the water supply scheme was made functional, they would not face any problem but for more than a month now we are been supply muddy water.

They said that they informed the authorities many times but they didn’t pay any heed to their grievances.

“We cannot go out of our homes to fetch clean drinking water from some nearby village as there is threat of Covid-19 and we have to solely remain dependent on water being supplied to us by the PHE department. However, since past one month we are being supplied contaminated water,” said a villager.

They appealed the deputy commissioner to personally look into the matter and direct the concerned officials to restore clean drinking water supply to the village.

Meanwhile an official of the PHE department said that a team of employees along with machinery have already been sent to the area to look into the matter—(KNO)
