Mumbai: Miffed with irregular and low-pressure water supply, residents of high profile A ward, which includes areas like Fort and Colaba, have threatened to take a ‘handa morcha’ to the ward office.

Some of the ward areas have been facing low-pressure water supply, whereas in some areas there has been irregular water supply since several months. According to local Shiv Sena corporator, Sujata Sanap, several areas have suddenly started experiencing low-pressure water supply. At many places, people have been facing a delay in water supply.

The water supply in the A ward has already been affected due to Metro works, which has resulted in damage to underground pipelines on several occasions. The water shortage has further added to the woes of local residents.

Ms Sanap, said, “I have complained to hydraulic department officials several times about this problem. However, there has been no change in the situation. The officials are saying that supply has been affected only at the fag end of the water supply network and in rest of the areas it is good.”

If BMC fails to sort out the problem, residents of A ward will take a handa morcha to the ward office, she threatened.
