Mawar residents seek action as poor quality water crisis persists for 15 days

Raja Akbar 
Srinagar, April 13 (KNS): For the past 15 days, residents of the Mawar area in north Kashmir's Kupwara district have been forced to consume poor quality black drinking water.

The issue has sparked outrage among locals who have appealed to  the Deputy Commissioner Kupwara and Superintendent of Police District Handwara to investigate the matter and take swift action.

Despite appeals from the residents, the district administration has not taken any concrete steps to address the issue. According to a local resident, "It is not just about a few people in a department, it is a matter of life and death for the lakhs of people living in Rajwar, Mawar and Qaziabad.Click Here To Follow Our WhatsApp Channel"

The situation has become so dire that some residents have even resorted to capturing video footage of the contaminated water in their own homes. "I am 41 years old and I have never seen water like this before," said a concerned resident.

However, a Sarpanch has given a media statement denying the existence of such an issue, blaming the situation for snow melting and rainfall. This explanation has not satisfied the residents, who are demanding a more comprehensive investigation and solution to the problem.(KNS)
