Indore: Keeping in view scarcity of water and irregularities in water supply in the Airport road area, local corporator along with residents staged a dharna at zonal office of the IMC here on Tuesday. On learning about the same, the IMC higher officials reached the scene and assured them of proper supply of water.

As per information, corporator Gopal Malu along with some the residents Shikshak Nagar, Raj Nagar, Venkatesh Nagar, Sukhdev Nagar and many other reached the zonal office of IMC and staged the dharna demanding proper supply of water.

It is found that the airport area doesn’t have required amount of water supply. Malu further said that adequate water was not available and the area was getting water supply for 15-20 minutes, which is insufficient. He added that even in those 15-20 minutes, the water that we get is dirty and is not suitable for drinking or any other purpose. He further said that he spoke to the officials of IMC several times but received nothing as a response.

He said that if this continues than a major Dharna would be carried out by the residents. Some of the residents said that, several complaints have been lodged with IMC authorities but nothing was done. Questions were raised that if the water supply is proper in the city than how come these localities are not receiving water. However, higher officials came to the scene and assured the residents for proper water supply.
