Kokrajhar (Assam), September 4, 2018:
Magurmari Water Supply Scheme in Mangramari village Kokrajhar district has remained shut for more than seven months due to the alleged negligence of the Public Health Engineering Department.
According to the locals every year the government sanctions multi crore for water supply schemes but not of the sanctioned money is ever used or utilized for the benefit of the people. The locals also alleged that because the government never utilizes the fund for the benefit of the people, the water supply scheme has become idle.

Due to the closure of the water supply the locals of the area people are facing huge problems.
