Remote areas suffer from inadequate water supply, Administration silent

Agartala, Sep 16 (TIWN): In Chief Minister Manik Sarkar’s so-called golden era, water scarcity yet looms large in remote tribal populated areas of the state and the government has failed to sort out the problem.

An acute water scarcity has hit Khaklai Para and Old Singlong Para, located at a distance of 5-km from Taidu market, Ampi and has made life terrible disrupting economic and social life of inhabitants. The inhabitants of the said area have been suffering from water scarcity since days. Both the villages are having supply points, but most of the points remain defunct and in most of the places the infrastructure has been remaining collapsed. Hence, water scarcity is persistent in the areas.

Despite repeated complaints before the DWS department, no initiatives are being taken for a way out to the problem, alleged the villagers. The department is playing the role of mute spectators. The administration is not taking any initiative over the solution of water crisis sparking resentment among the people. While Government claims to leave no stone unturned regarding development works, the sufferings of the people of Khaklai Para and Old Singlong Para establish the reality.

Villagers placed demands for extension of pipeline and installing new water points as the inhabitations located afar remains totally nil from the DWS service. The DWS higher ups should visit to observe the situation and bring a permanent solution to the problem.
