Ravikant Singh Rajput / Chirmiri- People are yearning for drop by drop of water in the scorching heat. Even in the ward where the MLA and the mayor’s house is located, people are seen struggling to drink water. Even after this, water is available once in four days. In such a situation, water is seen turning on the promises of the government. At the time of Municipal Corporation elections, the MLA and Mayor in every ward make various promises to the people. But as soon as the elections are over, their promises start appearing hollow. The same has happened with the people of Manendragarh-Chirmiri-Bharatpur.
People forced to fetch water by going deep ditch
Fooling people in the name of development is revealed when people are yearning to drink in the ward where the regional MLA and the corporation mayor live.

Have to buy and drink water several times- Ward residents
If we listen to the problems of the residents of the ward, they say that there is a shortage of water here for many years. Hundreds of people from three wards bring water everyday from the spring built in the village. The family which is not able to bring water from such a distance, has to buy water and drink it. The taps of the municipal corporation installed in the houses get water once or twice a week. That too only two-four boxes, in such a way how the water problem for the family will be solved.
