The area around Bogmalo has been facing an acute water shortage. Raising the issue, Bogmalo Sarpanch Lorena Da Cunha and Dy Sarpanch Sankalp Mahale arrived at PWD office, Baina to inquire about scarcity of water and irregular water supply for several days. They offered a verbal ultimatum, and threatened to agitate with the entire village if the issue is not resolved by Thursday. Mahale demanded the PWD Minister Nilesh Cabral to personally look into the issue as PWD also does not have sufficient water tankers as well. He appealed for placement of boosters in the area as it was the need of the hour.
He explained that the last four months, the issue of shortage of water is there despite visits of authorities.
Addressing the water shortage issue with tankers, Naresh Paiguinkar, AEW informed that they always keep a standby and when they know there will be an issue they keep extra. That’s sufficient as per demand, he said.
