No consistent rains raises PHED concern over Bisalpur Dam 19.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
All eyes of PHED officials in Jaipur are on the water level in the Bisalpur Dam. The officials are caught in a confusion about the future planning of water supply in the city in case the water level of the dam doesn’t increase. A few days back, the department had already cut down the water supply the city was receiving from 547mld to 520 mld. Officials informed that during the summer days, 547 mld water was being given. One of the alternatives which is being given thought is to provide water on an alternative day basis to various colonies. Few colonies may get water one-one day and another half may get on another day. The department is also considering other options like opening up more tube wells for the supply of water in the city while the tubewells which have become defunct they may also be repaired and opened up soon.

UP temple purified with Gangajal after visit of Dalit woman BJP MLA 30.7.2018 DNA: India
In a shocking incident, a temple in Hamirpur district of Uttar Pradesh was purified with ‘Gangajal’ and statues of deities were sent to Prayag for purification with Sangam holy water after a Dalit BJP woman MLA entered the temple. The Dalit BJP woman MLA from Raath, Manisha Anuragi had visited Muskara Khurd village in her assembly constituency on July 12 to attend a function. On the insistence of party workers, she visited the famous Dhrum Rishi temple in the village to offer prayers, not knowing that woman entry into the temple is banned. The temple is believed to be of Mahabharat era and entry to women devotees is banned for centuries. People believe that even if a woman touches the boundary wall of the temple, the area faces natural calamities like famine etc. “Due to an old belief, entry of women is banned inside the temple. They are allowed to pay obeisance from outside only without touching even its boundary walls,” pointed a visibly upset villager. During her visit inside the temple, the Dalit BJP ...
