[lang_en]KUMARHATTI: Resentment prevails among the residents of Barog over non-functioning of the water tank which supplies drinking water supply to Barog area. The tank was constructed under Giri water scheme but till date has remained non-operational due to the delay in laying of the water pipes.
The Giri scheme was supposed to end the water woes, rued Sanjay Thakur, the former pradhan of Barog panchayat. However, the water scarcity was same as in past despite the scheme has launched four months back, he pointed out. The successive state governments have made tall claims that implementation of Giri scheme would meet water problem but certainly not in the case of Barog, he maintained.
Meanwhile according to IPH the water tank was lying unused due to the non-availability of water pipes. The water supply through the tank would be started as soon as the department would get water pipes, asserted Hemant Tanwar, Executive Engineer of IPH, Solan.[/lang_en]
