In scorching heat of summer when water becomes utmost necessity, the residents of the said two localities are suffering greatly due to the water crisis.

Residents while talking to this correspondent told that only few months back, water was being supplied to the locality two times a day. Then the supply was cut to single time a day and now the two localities barely receive half an hour water that meets no requirements.
