Hundreds of people from different villages of Mendhar sub division of Poonch district on Friday staged a protest demonstration outside the office of sub divisional magistrate Mendhar against water scarcity in the area.

Raising slogans against Public Health Engineering department, protesters said that the concerned officers have failed to mitigate their suffering as entire Mendhar division is facing water shortage. “Even after availability of water in supply schemes, many water schemes are closed due to official apathy,” said a local resident.

Later, Sub Divisional Magistrate Mendhar, Dr. Tanveer Khan met the protesters and assured them that the faulty water pumping motors will be repaired within a couple of days. The protest was called off after his assurance.
