The residents appealed to the higher authorities to issue necessary directions to the officials to get the water supply restored in the area.
Assistant Executive Engineer, Public health engineering department, Tral, Nisar Ahmad Kar, said that, lack of proper drinking water in Pinglish is due to block in flow at upper reaches of Tral.
