The residents alleged that they were assured that the water tankers will be arranged between 6 and 9 in the morning and evening but the promise was not kept.
On Wednesday, the residents held a protest and the police had to intervene to control the situation. The residents were apprised by that the management that they had ordered 14 water tankers with 20,000 litres of capacity each to ease out the crisis but in reality they ordered only two tankers.
After the protest, an arrangement was reached that the water will be borrowed from the adjacent building for the time being. However, according to the residents they were still not getting any proper water supply to expect muddy water in flats.
"There are households who are either getting water in their kitchen or bathroom, while few have it in their washroom and the problem is far from being resolved,” Pandey added.
