Uri: Residents of Uri on Monday held a protest demonstration against the Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department for failing to provide them with clean drinking water.

Raising anti-PHE slogans, the protesters locked employees of the department in the office for an hour.
The protesting residents said they are not getting clean drinking water while the bills are sent regularly to their homes.
“Every month the department sends bills to our homes and we pay it on time but still we are not getting safe drinking water,” they said.
