A group of residents from Keezhkonnupatti near Musiri came to the collectorate here on Monday with empty pots and sought restoration of drinking water supply in the village.

Led by R. Saravanan, they submitted a petition to Jayashree Muralidaran, Collector. They said water supply was suspended in the village about six months ago.

Their repeated plea with the village panchayat president had proved to be a futile exercise. The Collector assured them of prompt action and advised officials to visit the village immediately.
