Political fallout: BJP faces heat as over dozen districts battle water crisis across Rajasthan 26.5.2018 DNA: India
As mercury continues to rise, heat is intensifying on BJP leaders across Rajasthan. There is water shortage in most parts of the state and protests for water are being witnessed in pockets of over a dozen districts. While monsoon is yet far off, several ruling party legislators have communicated to the chief minister Vasundhara Raje that, if unchecked, water could cause political damage.   There is concern within BJP that has already been badly stung by farmers’ agitation. The underlying sentiment is that — agitations have a tendency of spreading and if the scattered protests continue unchecked, they have the potential to escalate into law and order situation — something they do not desire when elections are round the corner. Water came across as a major problem during various jan samvad held by the chief minister. Matters escalated when Raje faced ire of protesting women demanding water in Sikar. Further, as many as 20 MLAs have told the chief minister that they are facing drinking water crisis in their ...

Gujarat: Long before govt, slum dweller began Jal Sanchay 26.5.2018 DNA: India
Yes, it's clearer than the water. A woman, who lives at one of the corner slum houses near Shyamal crossroads, has proved that she is ahead of the sarkar when it comes to storing rainwater. She has been dwelling in the dark Rajivnagar shanty for the last 40 years, but saving the free water better than the government's plan propagated through Jal Sanchay programme (water harvesting). Zarina Ghori has been using rainwater since last two years. The family has installed a roof rainwater harvesting system, and their yearly water need is met by the rain. The family have saved time and money by the simple mechanism of installing a water pipe. They have built an underground tank beneath their room. The tank is seven-feet-deep and ten-feet-wide. They let the water flow from the roof on the first day of the rains. From the second day, they divert the water to the tank. "Before the underground water tank was installed, we used to spend Rs300 to meet our monthly water needs. Also, we used to queue up and go to near ...

Rajasthan High Court seeks reply on shortcomings in farmers’ crop insurance scheme 26.5.2018 DNA: India
Rajasthan High Court has sought a reply by issuing a notice to the state’s chief secretary, chief secretary agriculture, chief secretary disaster management, chief secretary revenue and union secretary agriculture along with Bajaj Allianz General Insurance regarding several shortcomings in the farmers’ crop insurance scheme. A division bench of chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice GR Moolchandani gave this order while hearing the petition by Rampal Jat. It was mentioned in the petition that the farmers’ crop gets insured as soon as the kisan credit card is created for taking the loan. The insurance company automatically deducts the premium on the basis of the area of the farm. In such a case, the farmers have to get the insurance done, even if they do not agree. In return, the farmers can only get the compensation if more than 50 per cent of their crop is damaged due to bad weather. The petitioner Jat claims that patwari, agricultural supervisor and village servant send a combined report of damage ...

As monsoon approaches, Amdavadis say height of roads to bring more troubles 26.5.2018 DNA: India
With the monsoons approaching, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has set about fixing the broken roads across the city. However, many residents have complained that after the resurfacing, they are facing problems and it could only lead to more trouble when the rains start. "The roads are fixed and seem smooth but due to their unreasonable height, vehicles are facing a lot of problems. It is very risky to drive two-wheelers near the edges of roads and there is a risk of losing balance," said Nimish Joshi, of Anandnagar. Javed Mansuri from Jamalpur said, "AMC has resurfaced the roads, but owing to that, the height of the road has increased so much that I have to construct a small wall to prevent rain water from coming into my house. Previously, the roads were not as high as they are now." Similar complaints regarding the height of roads have been coming in from other parts of the city too. At many places, dividers which were two feet higher than the streets are now at the same level as the roads. "In ...
