The tenants either have to boil it to drink or will have to buy from the outside. Many have expressed anger and raised questions on the poor water quality and complained that tap water proving costlier for the children and elders.
“World Water Day is celebrated, keeping people at bay and it should have been observed among general public, then it would have been come to known to the authorities about the fact of potable water quality. Many residents receive contaminated water and it stinks. So, how can someone use or drink it ? that’s why, we have to buy the water from outside,” said, Imtiyaz from Shaheen Nagar.
Unseasonal & unexpected rain and unsatisfactory water supply has been a matter of concern for the residents. Men, Women, Children and elders frequently fall sick and raise eye brows on the water quality.
“Many infants and children below 10-years catch cold, cough and fever that lasts at least 15 days more. No one take note of it and many complaints have been made to official concerned but nothing has been done,” complained, another Osman from Asifnagar mandal.
