RAWALPINDI—The res­i­dents of Raja Akram Colony on Dhamial road are fac­ing acute wa­ter short­age for the last many days de­spite lay­ing of a new pipe­line at a cost of Rs 1 mil­lion. The res­i­dents said that Chak­lala Can­ton­ment Board CCB has failed to pro­vide potable wa­ter. Azhar Hameed a area res­i­dent talk­ing to APP Fri­day said wa­ter is not avail­able in the lo­cal­ity. He said we can­not af­ford to get wa­ter from tankers as it was too costly.

An­other res­i­dent of the lo­cal­ity Haseeb Bhatti said we were pay­ing wa­ter bills reg­u­larly but its sup­ply was not be­ing en­sured. The res­i­dents urged the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to take steps for reg­u­lar sup­ply of wa­ter. Vice Chair­man Chak­lala Can­ton­ment Raja Ir­fan told that wa­ter pipe­line had been laid and said steps are be­ing taken to en­sure sup­ply of wa­ter reg­u­larly. He said due to the gap be­tween sup­ply and de­mand, the res­i­dents are fac­ing the prob­lem.—APP
