Water crisis in Nagpur: Citizens may get water on alternate days for four months

Picture for representational purpose

If haven’t felt the pinch of doing without water on day 1 (Wednesday) of the cut in supply, it’s time to brace yourselves and be prepared for a lot more than just a pinch – to be precise, 4 months of scarcity due to severe water crisis in Nagpur. This is what all of us in Nagpur have to be prepared for in the immediate future given that all the major, medium, and minor reservoirs in the district have run out of live stock of water.

To punch out a few scary numbers – Totladoh reservoir on river Pench has just 56MM3 water and Navegaon Khairy reservoir has 33 MM3 stock water that is just about enough to quench the thirst of the city for only a month. The only way to stretch the water stock available if the dry spell doesn’t end would be to continue alternate day water supply for a period of four months.

To add to the problem Water Works Department of NMC has pumps that can draw water from the level of 318 metres whereas the water level in Totladoh reservoir has dipped to 314 metres. To help mitigate the problem to some extent, guardian minister Chandrashekar Bawankule has directed NMC to carry out technical modifications so that they are able to pump water even if the level dips to 311 meters.

The guardian minister also advised the collector to send a letter to the Madhya Pradesh state government, with an urgent request to release 10-15 MMC water from the Chaurai dam on the Pench river which is has 94 million metre cube (MMC) water in stock. He has further directed the NMC to catch and take action against those wasting water or using tap water for non-drinking purposes.

Directing officials of various government authorities to make rainwater harvesting mandatory Bawankule told them that all the Government buildings, households in NMC area, and large properties in villages must have rainwater harvesting.

Taking steps to handle the serious water shortage, mayor Nanda Jichkar has requested corporators of all wards to plan and submit proposals for installing rainwater harvesting systems in their respective wards giving them the assurance that she will try to approve the schemes from the mayors fund.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
