MENDHAR(M S Nazki): Residents of Kotain Kandi village in Mendhar sub divison of district accused employees of Public Health Engineering (PHE) department of not paying any attention towards the leakage of water pipes in the area.

They alleged that the employees of PHE department don't attend their duties regularly due to which resentment is brewing among the people.

They said the water is supplied to the village from a nearby reservoir, but the department has failed to care for its maintenance and protection.

"The water is supplied to our village from a nearby reservoir. The supply line has many leakages at different places. The employees of the PHE department posted in the village are totally negligent about the matter. We have apprised them a number of times, but they pay no heed to our pleas," the residents said. "The supply line and the reservoir needs repairs and maintenance so that water is prevented from being wasted. Leaked water often flow through the roads," they added.

The residents threatened to come to the roads if the department doesn't take steps for the redressal of their grievances.
