Guwahati is slowly becoming inhospitable without the life-sustaining element, water in various areas. Reports of water shortage are a constant grumble of the city residents.
The residents of Guwahati’s Zoo Road Tiniali area on Tuesday evening staged a dharna programme against the irregular water supply in the area. Several senior citizens also took part in the dharna programme and demanded immediate action from the local MLA and CM Sarbananda Sonowal regarding the issue. They further alleged that contaminated water is being supplied in some localities of Guwahati. They blamed Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) for their plight.
“The irregularities in water supply need to be methodically investigated and the government needs to accelerate its pace with the water supply schemes,” said a senior citizen in Zoo Road locality.
