He further said that there were around 100 families in Dariyabad locality, which were facing water crisis due to the water negligence of Jal Sansthan who are aware of the problem but have not paid any attention for resolving the issue.
Lamenting over the situation, a resident of Unchawagarhi, in Rajapur locality, Ashutosh Rai said that he along with his wife and two children have shifted to her parents' house in Chhota Baghara locality after a month of struggle to manage with the nominal water supply.
Many other localities in the city, especially in the old areas are facing the same situation. While Jal Sansthan officials claim they are sincerely working on the problem, water woes are spreading to other part of the city.
Jal Sansthan officials recently claimed they had launched a drive to repair defunct hand pumps and make newly installed tube wells functional, but there is no respite for people yet. However, one of the officials of Jal Sansthan admitted that there was a water crisis in various parts of the city and assured that soon this problem will be solved and the acute situation would be addressed at the earliest, he added.
