Seven sectors of the City Beautiful remained without water supply due to bursting of water pipe while carrying out repair at the Sector 27/28 roundabout on Thursday.
The areas that remained without water supply on Thursday evening and Friday are Sectors 20, 21, 26 to 30. Though the municipal corporation repaired the pipe on Friday evening, it was again burst, hitting the supply once again.
"Water did not trickle on Thursday evening and entire Friday. We haven't made any arrangements and it has become difficult to run our daily chores. We do not know why the MC has taken so long to repair the pipe and it even did not inform us about the problem," said Mandeep Kaur, a resident of Sector 20.
"Our taps are running dry. There was no water for drinking too," said Vishal Nagpal, a resident of Sector 27.
However, when contacted, MC chief engineer SS Bidda said, "The water pipe was repaired on Friday evening, but it again got burst. The repair work is on and we are hopeful of giving Saturday morning supply to the said sectors."
