Special Correspondent

Puducherry: The president of Pondicherry Panchayat Movement, V.A. Vasudevaraju, has alleged in a letter to the Lt Governor on Monday that absence of coordination between the Public Works Department and the commune panchayat in meeting the basic requirements had been causing hardship to the residents in the Kanuvapet village near here.

He said that the residents of Kanuvapet were not getting potable water regularly for last one week.

But the delay in demarcating the powers to the civic bodies had been causing hardship. He requested the Lt. Governor to intervene and ensure that the civic bodies had a clear jurisdiction.
