The delay in monsoon has added to peopleâ€™s woes who are already reeling under water scarcity. The problem has now worsened in Central Nagpur as citizens take to streets.
Central Nagpur staged demonstrations against the drinking water crisis and supply of adulterated water in many areas in central Nagpur. The agitators led by Adv Nanda Parate met NMC Assistant Commissioner, Prakash Warhade on this issue.
The residents of central Nagpur are facing crisis of drinking water. Muddy water is being supplied through the taps and residents of Mominpura, Timki, Bhankheda, Golibar Square, Budhwari, Naik Talao, Tandapeth, Lalganj, Maskasath, Juni Mangalwari, Gandhibagh and Itwari, have left no option than to drink the adulterated muddy water due to which many residents are suffering with chronic diseases after drinking the tap water.
