Shimla, Jan 24 (UNI) The continuing drinking water woes in Shimla town today claimed their victim in Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal who was forced to re-schedule or call off his prior engagements after all water supply lines froze following a night temperature of minus 4.4 degrees Celsius.

Mr Dhumal had to call off his scheduled visit to the office of a local fortnightly magazine here after water supply lines to his official residence had frozen due to sub-zero temperatures, besides delaying his other engagements.

Normal life has been thrown out of gear in the state capital, which recorded sub-zero temperatures for the fourth consecutive day today.
