Jammu battles acute water scarcity 22.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, July 21 The Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department’s much-talked about contingency plans to tide over drinking water shortage have miserably failed in the winter capital of the state with many parts of Jammu city getting water supply after a gap of three to four days and that too, for just 45-50 minutes. Consequently, there is a simmering discontent and resentment among the residents as the grim situation has emerged in ‘Shravan Maas’ which is considered as one of the holiest months in the year as per the Hindu calendar. The ‘Sawan’ month, as per the Hindu mythology, is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Leave aside the domestic water needs of people, sometimes the devotees of Lord Shiva do not even get water to offer at most of the temples in the city. Much to the people’s annoyance, the PHE officials are inaccessible to them. “The unavailability of drinking water to people has punctured the balloon of good governance being claimed by the BJP-PDP government. We had never seen such ...
