  1. News published in THE TRIBUNE, ‘No shortage of water, says XEN’ (Tribune News Service) dated 23june 2007.This is one sided statement without confirmations with us.

    With due respect ,I would like to clarify regarding this matter. Problem has been taken care by I &ph

    Now some improvement has been done by I & ph panchrukhi.

    We the people of lower Ladoh were suffering for last many years. When our problem has been not taken care
    by the I&PH , then we approached for swajal dhara scheme in the month of Jan 2007. if we were not suffering then why we wasted time of everyone or approached for swajal dhara and approached your correspondent of tribune.

    I & PH had issued tender vide no:Awar/Dl/Ph/Sdp/ 1846 to 1850 dtd 07 Dec 2006 for 900 meter in behalf of their own contractor to solve our problem. I want to know why this tender is going still pending with executive Engineer I &PH office Palampur. .

    I & PH could investigate this matter via their own senior officers or any agency from the group of these people who belong to lower Ladoh.

    Four year ago I had a very bad experience when we were suffering from the erratic supply of water.
    When water was not coming in our tap, my wife went to “Babuli”(origin water resources) she slipped and got fracture in her left leg. I had hospitalized her in Delhi for six months.This was also a waste of time,money and uncessary tension.

    No shortage of water, says XEN
    Tribune News Service Palampur, June 22
    Responding to the news item headlined “ Villagers resent erratic water supply”, the executive engineer, IPH division, Palampur, has claimed that there is no shortage of water at Ladoh village in Panchrukhi. Two energised hand-pumps are being used to supply water to the village. The Holta-Banuri-Saliana gravity water supply scheme is also adequately serving the village, which has a population of 750, adds the technocrat.
