Traffic on the Ooty-Kotagiri highway was disrupted for about 15 minutes on Thursday owing to a road roko agitation staged at the Maduvana junction by some of the residents of the PWD quarters on Stone House hill.

According to the police, the demonstration was in protest against the inadequate supply of water by the Municipality. The crowd dispersed following an assurance given by the MLA M. Buddhichandran.

Later, Municipal Commissioner K. Sivakumar said that until the storage in the water source improved arrangements would be made to supply water through lorries.
