Gurugram: Residents of Sector 23 recently met Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) Commissioner and handed over a memorandum seeking his intervention on water scarcity in the sector.
Residents of Sectors 21,22 and 23 are facing a tough time since a month as they are not getting adequate water supply in their areas which is hampering their daily lives.
The residents said MCG had provided water connection directly to the unauthorised colonies from the main supply pipeline of Basai water treatment plant due to which they were are not getting adequate water supply to meet their requirement.
They alleged that thousands of liters of water is wasted in unauthorised colonies, as it is directly connected to the main line without any valve. While the unauthorised colonies gets 24 hours of water supply, residents of the above sectors are deprived of water.
The people informed that just before state election, pipelines were laid to provide water connection to the unauthorised colonies. Due to direct connection from main pipeline, the boosting station in the sector is getting less water thus adding water woes in the area.
Malkhan Singh, President of RWA Sector 23 A, said, "There are no booster or any assigned official to ensure that water is not wasted. Thousands of people living in the sector are unable to get adequate water supply.”
“I am not against them getting supplied water but the time should be fixed and the duty of an employee should be assigned to ensure that there is not wastage of water,” Singh added.
Similarly, residents of Sector 22 also complained about insufficient water in their sector. Bhim Singh Yadav, RWA president Sector 22 B, said, “We are the worst affected as we don't have any booster. We have to ask others to stop their motor pump so that we can get our share of water. There are 650 families in the sector and it is unfair to get only minimal amount of water for a short duration despit paying all types of taxes and charges.”
Meanwhile, MCG officials said that they will look into the matter and resolve it soon.
