Residents of Zahir Hussain Nagar, under Mapillayurani panchayat, thronged the Tuticorin Collectorate on Monday seeking the intervention of Collector M. Ravikumar to sort out the long pending drinking water problem.

The agitating residents under the banner of Manithaneya Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam led by its district president M. Kather Mohideen staged a demonstration in front of the Collectorate. They said the residents could not get drinking water and they had to rely on private sources for water most of the time.
