Tannery Rd residents are left high and dry - Bangalore - City - The Times of India
BANGALORE: Residents of some parts of Tannery Road, including Vinobhanagar and Bharatmata Layout, are complaining that they haven't got a drop of Cauvery water for the past two months. Tired of calling BWSSB several times, they took to the streets on Monday in protest.
"We are not getting water supply for two months. People are buying from private sources. Each pot costs Rs 2 to Rs 5, and Cauvery water is Rs 6. Over 2,000 people have been affected due to this. The strange thing is we have been getting water bills regularly, some of which have even gone up to Rs 800," said Imtiaz Ahmed, a resident.
However, BWSSB chief engineer T Venkatraju insisted the areas are getting water. "There were fluctuations in supply. Cauvery water and borewell facilities will be improved."
