Baramulla, Dec 20: The leakage in a PHE pipeline is irking the residents of village Jalsheri of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
BDC vice chairman Baramulla and Sarpanch Jalsheri Sameer Gelani said due to the leakage in pipeline the road, which connects the village with Baramulla town, has turned into a well and the concerned department Jal Shakti is not paying any attention to repair the pipeline from past several years.

“I have no such information but I assure you that I will contact my official team on ground and will get the pipeline repaired”. (KNS)
