By Shaista Hakeem

Mingora: The people of Swat  staged a protest demonstration over shortage of water in Mingora.

The residents of Gulkada No. 1, Gulkada No 2, Malookabad, Barama an Rang Mohalla participated in the protest in front of the Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) office and chanted slogans against the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and TMA officers.

The protesters said they are facing water shortage since the beginning of Ramazan due to which they are facing many difficulties. They said they have submitted many applications with the TMA and elected representatives, but the problem remains unresolved.

The local people said they will be compelled to start a protest movement if the problem was not resolved by Eid.

A TMA official, Akhtar Ayub said most of the tube wells are non-functional due to prolonged power load-shedding and low voltage.
