Krishnagiri: Activists of the Communist Party of India (CPI) staged a demonstration in front of the Block Development Office here on Tuesday, protesting against erratic water supply at Palakuri, Kodiyur, Melkottai, Rajkottai and Bellarampalli in Ittikal Agaram panchayat.

Residents in the area were put to untold hardships, as the local body had not initiated any steps to provide basic amenities including protected drinking water.

The activists claimed that the local body had not supplied water to several parts in the panchayat for the past two weeks.

The activists demanded uniform supply of water to all villages in Ittikal Agaram panchayat.

They wanted the local body to sort out the problems in the drinking water distribution network.

The residents had represented these issues to the panchayat officials and the ward councillor on several occasions.
