VELLORE: Around 50 residents of 56th ward of Corporation laid siege to the office of zone IV here on Wednesday demanding water.

The residents of Konavattam, most of them women, gathered at the office and raised slogans against the Corporation. They said  they had not received drinking water through the pipe for the last 10 months. “We didn’t get drinking water in our area but other wards are getting water regularly. Water should be supplied to us at least through tractors once in two days. The councillor is biased towards us,” said a woman from Konavattam.

Junior Engineer G Senthil said,“We didn’t receive any complaint regarding drinking water. We will immediately arrange for water through tractor once in three days.” Zone IV president K Aiyyapan said,“I will discuss with the commissioner regarding a new borewell in Konavattam.” The residents ended the siege after the zonal president’s assurance. Councillor S Amutha was  unavailable for comment.
