The residents of Ward No.9 of Cooch Behar, obstructed the road leading to Toofanganj, demanding the provision of drinking water. Due to this incident, the people, who were travelling, faced lots of problems. The Kotwali Police, reached the spot, after receiving the information about the incident, but the people refused to move. The situation was controlled only after the employees of the Municipality assured them.
Local people have accused them of not providing any source of drinking water for the last five years. They were forced into taking this drastic step as no action was taken by the Vice-Chairman of Cooch Behar Municipality even after receiving several applications.
