Haryana State govt’s promise of uninterrupted supply during Ramzan not met Sumedha Sharma Gurugram, June 10 The state government’s tall promise of uninterrupted water supply during Ramzan had fallen flat.
The wells in these villages have dried up and government water supply is erratic.
Women in these villages have to walk over 4 km to get water from a jungle nearby or buy water at exorbitant rates.
There are no pipelines and wells have dried up.
There is no water supply or groundwater.
“Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar promised unobstructed water supply during Ramzan, but what happened thereafter?

The district administration had, over the years, identified 400 villages facing scarcity of water, but nothing much had been done to mitigate the suffering.
