News2News.in News: Loharu:Minister, up to now no one has listened to my advice, let sewer water reach my village, we will sing hymns of praise, if sewer water does not come, then we will also get drinking water, that is the request of the farmers from eight villages in the Loharu block. Yes, due to the deepening of the water table due to the lack of sewer water, the farmers of eight villages that are across the railway line in Loharu are not receiving water for irrigation, raising the possibility of drinking water shortages in the nearby future. The situation is that more than half a dozen villages in the Loharu Block are not only deprived of sewer water, but the water table in those villages has dropped by 500 to 600 feet. The people of this place have asked for sewer water many times before the state government, but so far have not taken any positive initiative. Because of this, the problem of water for irrigation is growing in front of the peasants of these villages.
Farmers said that half of Sonhasada village, including Dhani Akbarpur, is without sewer water, in such a situation, apart from irrigation, drinking water shortages may occur in the near future. The main reason for the unavailability of canal water is the railway line due to which the canal could not be built even during the previous governments, nor did any government correct it.
It should be noted that most of the farmers of around 5,000 acres of land in these villages are based on agriculture and a population of around 20,000 live in these villages and dhanis. Due to a lack of sewage water, the farmers here are currently completely dependent on groundwater for irrigation, and the excessive exploitation of this water has also lowered the groundwater level. The situation is that now, even if the farmer gets a borehole for water, he will not get water, causing the farmer to suffer financial losses.
Ramanand, a farmer of Dhani Shyama village, narrated that he had made 4 to 5 bored wells in the field, but no water was found in any of them, even if it was found in some, it was undrinkable. Again, the amount of TDS in the water is over 1000, while according to JE Mitash and Kapil of the Public Health Department, 500 mg to 1000 mg per liter of TDS is acceptable, more than this TDS can by no means be considered correct. The depth of underground water in Loharu area is about 500 feet, if sewer water comes to these villages, groundwater will improve and TDS will also improve, since sewer water is the sewer base that improves TDS. He said that Dhani Rahimpur and Dhani Shyama can be connected to the city supply.

Talks are underway with the Ministry of Railways, hope for approval soon: Minister of Agriculture
Agriculture Minister JP Dalal said that the matter is under his supervision. Farmers face problems due to lack of sewer water. After former Prime Minister Chaudhary Bansilal, he has been striving for water in the canals of the Loharu area and has also supplied water. He is the son of a farmer and knows the pain and suffering of farmers very well. Discussions are underway with the Ministry of Railways in this regard, and approval is expected shortly. After receiving the permit, these villages will also be connected to canal water. After receiving approval from the Ministry of Railways, these villages will soon be supplied with canal water. Farmers must not have problems with sewer water.
