Several parts of Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) including Afshan Colony, Peoples Colony, Masrial Road, Dhoke Syedan, Bakra Mandi and adjoining areas are facing water scarcity as RCB has sealed 48 water hydrants in different areas of the cantonment limits.
The residents complained that some parts of Cantonment Board do not get adequate water supply as its consumption increases many time in summer season and water scarcity come up every year. Crowd can be seen at water filtration plants because some parts were reported without water for many days but the authorities concerned are making just verbal claims of sufficient supply and even providing water by tankers also.
Shortage of water supply in Afshan Colony, Peoples Colony, Masrial Road, Dhoke Syedan and others areas of Rawalpindi Cantonment Board has made lives of the residents miserable.
Haji Iqbal, Abdul Waheed, Tanveer Iqbal and others said the residents are facing great difficulties due to water shortage but the authorities concerned are paying no heed towards the resolution of the issue.
Several complaints have been registered but the water supply situation could not be improved, they added.—APP
