Jaipur: Have-nots protest ‘special pipeline’ 7.6.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
It was George Orwell’s Animal Farm which introduced the phrase “all men are created equal, but some are more equal than others”. The same allegation is being levelled by residents of Venkateswar Colony who claim that a special pipeline has been laid that services the staff of a minister in Rajasthan government.

The reason: The pipeline reportedly connects the residents on the lane, including that of Mahendra Kumar Sharma, special assistant to Minister of State Rajkumar Rinwa, with drinking water supply.  The PHED, according to sources, overruled the opposition of local councillor and chairman of Municipal Corporation’s Cultural Committee, Bhanwar Lal Saini who wanted drinking water supplied to other residents of the colony as well.

Mr Jain, a resident of Sector 36, said, "The problems faced because of the shortage of water are not taken seriously as every other day, the water comes in a polluted state." The Authority accepts the problem of contaminated water and claims to have sorted it. SC Arora, Project Engineer, ...
