The authorities seem to have forgotten this village of Budgam district as there is no potable water available to around 800 inhabitants. The women folk have to tread miles to fetch water daily which has resulted in the low literacy rate among girls in Churpora village of this central Kashmir district. People of this village are compelled to drink contaminated water of nearby rivulets which has caused several ailments mostly to the women. Rafiqa Bano reports from Churpora Budgam.
