Rahmoo residents stage protest against water scarcity
Pulwama, Sep 14: Residents of Rahmoo village in Pulwama district of south Kashmir held a protest demonstration on Friday over scarcity of water in the area.
The protest demonstration was held in Boungam Tali Mohallah of Rahmoo village. The locals alleged that the PHE authorities are not paying any heed towards the issue of water scarcity in their area.
Protesters blocked the main road leading towards district headquarter Pulwama and stopped school buses, passenger vehicles and many other vehicles to register their protest against the authorities.
One of the protesters told Kashmir Images that we have already brought the issue in the notice of PHE authorities several times but they have always made false promises of resolving the issue of water scarcity.
When contacted concerned JE Bashir Ahmad, he said, “We have taken the note of this issue and within 2 days, the water pipes will be installed in the village".
“Rest of the village is being provided the water facility as per the daily schedule,” he added.
