Jammu facing poor management of water supply: J&K Shri Ram Sena alleges
Poor management of water supply has left Jammuites in many parts of the city angry and exasperated at the state of civic affairs. Talking to reporters here today, Shri Ram Sena's J&K state president, Rajiv Mahajan said some parts of the city were receiving water for more than two hours twice a day, while other areas had to depend on water tankers.

The water is supplied either late at night or afternoon, which is inconvenient. "Most of the residents in our area are employees and we have time only in the mornings to get fresh water supply," he said.

"There has been minimal supply of water in many areas of Jammu city too with no proper timing because of which people are unable to carry on daily chores," said Rajiv Mahajan.

He said that the supply pressure is so low that they are unable to even store water. "Some government employees are unable to get ready for office on time without water supply in the morning," he alleged.

"Due to water supply in the afternoon, housewives are neither able to complete their cooking etc, nor are they able to wash clothes or utensils in the absence of stored water," he mentioned.

"Everything is fine, but residents don't have water supply in the morning and this bring them a lot of trouble! I hope the concerned authority can solve the problem soon," Rajiv Mahajan said.

He demanded drinking water supply through pipelines from 6:00 AM onwards daily.

He appealed to Governor N.N. Vohra to instruct to concerned officials to look into the matter on priority basis and streamlining the water supply in the morning hours from 6:00 am onwards.

Others who were present in the press conference include Bal Krishan Arora, Naveen Raina, Deepak Slathia, Sushil Verma and others.
