GANDERBAL :-People Living in Kujjar Village along with five adjoining village in District Ganderbal are suffering due to non availibity of drinking water.
The reason behind this is a damaged water reservoir which has been abandoned by the Jal Shakti department.
Years back a water reservoir was established in the area which was left non functional and the structure deteriorated with the span of time People in the area said that the water reservoir is unsafe and poses threat to human lives They also said that the department is less bothered about the maintenance of reservoir despite repeated requests by the people.
Though there is natural spring near the reservoir which was maintained by the department as source of supply to the reservoir but that also remained defunct.
This source of pure drinking water has been also wasted due to the negligence of department.
