Vishtanti Nagar residents protest over erratic water supply

Aurangabad: Residents of Vishtanti Nagar on Monday staged a dharna on the premises of the civic body’s main administrative building over erratic water supply in their locality.
Thus, the municipal authorities supply water through tankers for which the residents have to shell out Rs 1,100 for every three month.
"The AMC supplies only 200 liter water per family in three days.
On many occasions, we miss our turn and are forced to wait for 5-6 days.
It is very frustrating especially during the summer," said Sukanya Bhonsale, one of the agitators.
"For one of the other reason, the tankers operators skip the supply and people have to buy water from private suppliers," she said.
People will not hesitate to pay more if they get enough water.
But the ground reality is different.
Every time the residents have to spend long hours waiting for water," Suradkar said.
About 40% of the city’s residential area comes under Gunthewari where in the municipal body is supplying water through tankers.
