The forum was attended by people of Shahalia and its adjoining areas.
The complainants also discussed water scarcity in the area and shortage of teaching staff at government schools.
“The underground water level has plunged drastically and streams are rapidly drying up and to address water scarcity, you should ensure that a potable water supply scheme is launched,” said one of the complainants.

“The issues related to the district administration would be addressed as early as possible and the rest would be referred to relevant department for solution,” he added.
