(A letter to the Editor about water shortage.)

22, Napier Colony,
Jopling Road,
Bhopal – 301090
26 May, 2015
The Editor,
The Hindustan Times,

Subject – Water shortage in our area

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I the resident of Napier colony on behalf of my colony members, wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to the severe water shortage problems that we have been experiencing for past many days.
We get water supply for just 1 hr in 24 hrs and amount of water barely comes to 80 litres a day. As summer has set in it is really difficult for us to manage with this miserably low quantity of water. The civics authorities often send tankers but the relief is only temporary. The supply of water by tankers is also inadequate and at times the residents had to resort the capturing of the tankers forcibly. Such a situation has led to violence many a time and quite often police have to be summoned to quell the riotous situation. This has also led to animosity among the residents of the society.
The residents of the area have been clamouring for some permanent solution. Summer or winter, the problem is always there, though in summer it gets more acute. In view of the foregoing we would urge the administration to offer proper infrastructural planning and take the remedial steps necessary to solve the problem.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,
A Singh
