Citizens of the twin cities are forced to buy water tankers at higher prices as the pipeline has been leaking for quite some time while local authorities took no action.
The citizens had urged Islamabad administration to stop the supply of contaminated water and take legal action against tanker mafia who are filling water from the leakage and selling the containment water which can lead to spread of diseases.
The supply of safe drinking water to the residents of the city has been a major challenge for the local civic agencies. The situation has not improved much after the introduction of the district governance system.
