Amritsar, August 6
Though the Municipal Corporation (MC) has been campaigning to make the residents aware about the importance of conserving water, its action is antithesis to its claims. A water supply pipe in Anmol Enclave at Ram Tirath Road has been lying broken for the past six months, resulting in a sheer wastage of water.
Kuldeep Kaur, a resident of the area, said the sewerage board had laid sewerage lines around six months ago. While installing the sewerage, the water pipe got damaged. “Residents requested the contractor to get it repaired but he ignored,” she said. “We are facing inconvenience due to leakage of water as it gets accumulated in streets. People have made an arrangement to drain the water into a sewerage manhole. Water is being wasted for six months,” said another resident. — TNS
