Locals from Aaditrag, Pulwama protest against the Jal Shakti Department on water scarcity at Aditrag, Pulwama on Sunday. 

A local elected panch from the area was among the protesters said, "We are facing this problem from December last year. Till now no attention is being paid by any employees of the Jal Shakti department in the village. They are only present in the times of fee collection". Inhabitants allege that they are being forced to use the contaminated water from the local nallah which is not even worthy to touch, but we are using the same water for our daily use that too in the current times of pandemic. 

Taking the issue with the concerned officials of Jal Shakt department, they said that the problem will be solved in a day or two.
