Water Crisis in MP Village For Past Three Years Has Compelled People To Travel 5 km To Fetch Water

Water crisis

Tikamgarh, in Madhya Pradesh, is facing a water crisis. The town Tikamgarh has deprived for past three years of water that villagers travel every day five km to fetch water.

The village people population is around 3000 and most of them are petty traders or farm laborers. The State and the Central government launched schemes have failed, despite many complaints and attempts to reach the villagers.

“We have to walk till the border of Uttar Pradesh to get water’ said the locals.  They also said children are unable to attend school as they also participate in fetching water. The non-availability of drinking water has compelled women to walk every day 5 km through forest road to get water, shared the locals.

The Tikamgarh village also is deprived of basic facilities such as electricity and all-weather road. Water shortage has hit many Madhya Pradesh parts and also other states. Madhya Pradesh water crisis has compelled people to drink dirty water.

Jaisinagar town in the Sagar district also is facing the trouble of shortage of water and walk to fetch water to around 2 to 5 km.  The construction work is long pending of the overhead tank. In fact, last year the MP assured that in three months time the water tank will be ready.  In fact, there was no water distribution pipe system in Jaisinagar and now in summers the mercury crossing 40 degrees Celsius has worsened the water crisis.

On Friday, distributing gas connections program to villagers was held and after that, the media raised the overhead water tank issue. The defensive MP was taken by surprise and said he will find out the reason for the delay in the tank construction.

On being reminded, the MP, Yadav was annoyed and asked ‘do you expect me to distribute water visiting houses’, and he also said as the villagers have waited for water so many years, the sky will not fall in other few months.
