Villagers of Kathua face water crisis, fetch water from nullah for all purposes

Villagers of Draman panchayat in Bashohli block of Kathua district are facing acute water crisis.

Villagers are forced to fetch water from a nullah for all purposes.

One of the villagers informed ANI, "People of 3-4 villages are building a canal on their own.

We fetch water from a contaminated nullah.

Around 10 of us go to fetch the water which we use for two days." Another villager said, "We neither have water to drink nor to feed our animals, our land has dried up." Kathua Deputy Commissioner OP Bhagat assured that matter will be sorted soon.

He said, "I have spoken with PHE Department, if they've received fund then work will be done soon.

I've already given order to make water tankers available at all places that are facing water crisis and authority is doing the same."
