The reason: it has been three months since a drop of water spilled out of the water pumps in their locality.
The residents of Thirunavukkarasu Thottam (TK Garden) locality carried empty water pots and sat at the busy and popular Bombay Hotel Junction in Thiruvottriyur High Road on Tuesday afternoon.
However, the residents refused to leave until they got an assurance from the local Metro Water unit that water tankers would be sent by the evening of that day.
“The Metro Water tanker does not even come for two or three days,’’ he said, adding that this has deprived the residents of drinking water too.
Since, there’s no water in the area, the residents have been forced to go to nearby localities to fetch water.
