Tribune News Service New Delhi, May 22 The BJP today attacked the AAP government and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claiming the government has done little to address the water woes in the areas inhabited by residents belonging to the economically weaker section.

Also, the fact that 1,44,451 complaints of water contamination have been recorded by the DJB speaks volumes about the AAP government’s claims of having 9 laboratories for monitoring quality of raw water and potable water production at treatment plants, Gupta added.

Official apathy makes Jurreru totally defunct 21.5.2017
KURNOOL: Residents of Banganapalle have sought intervention of the District Collector S. Satyanarayana to make Jurreru reservoir reusable. The utter disregard and callousness of officials has resulted in zero maintenance of the reservoir. It is thick with sludge and overgrown shrubs and grass making it totally incapable of retaining the storage water. It has a capacity of 1.2 tmc ft of dead storage level but not fit to store water. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has promised to take Krishna water from Srisailam reservoir to Jurreru in Banaganapalle. With the commissioning of Muchumarri Lift, the prospect of getting water to Jurreru has rekindled. But the condition of Project Jurreru is far from satisfactory as it is totally rendered unusable. Though Banaganapalle MLA Janardhan Reddy volunteered to desilt the lake bed, it did not yield any respite in storing the desired water level, villagers said. Official apathy, lack of co-ordination, negligence of the maintenance engineers rendered Jurreru medium ...
