Now, Jaisalmer faces polluted water threat 23.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A few days ago, spill of molasses from a sugar factory in Punjab was disposed off in Beas River, which polluted the water and killed fish, snakes and other animals.  The contaminated water then reached Rajasthan through Indira Gandhi Canal and is expected to reach Jaisalmer via Ganganagar on Tuesday morning. While the administration is on an alert about the matter in Ganganagar and has stopped the water supply but neither the canal department nor the administration in Jaisalmer is aware about this danger. According to experts, water laden with chemicals can be poisonous, which can harm the residents as there is no awareness about the issue in Jaisalmer yet. The water running in the canal has become black, poisonous and is also extracting a foul smell due to thousands of dead cattle flowing with the water. The canal enters Jaisalmer through Nachana and from there, a different canal supplies drinking water to Jodhpur. After that, the canal reaches Mohangarh, from where the water is supplied to the cities ...

The city continued to sizzle on Monday as it recorded maximum temperature of 42 degrees Celsius and the sky remained clear adding to the heat. The meteorological department has predicted no respite from the rising mercurial level in the coming days as it is expected to touch 44 degrees Celsius soon. Monday saw a minimum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and strong surface wind during the day. The weatherman has advised people to stay indoors during the daytime and keep themselves properly covered and hydrated if they step out. The minimum temperature will oscillate between 26 to 27 degrees Celsius.

The city receives its water from Haryana, which of late has cut short the supply. Only last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar about the ...
