Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Almost 40% of the population of MP's capital city Bhopal is facing the problem of water scarcity on Thursday. The scarcity has been caused due to disruption of power supply which ultimately led to non operational pumps. Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has assured to normalise the situation by the evening.
Mayor-in-Council (MiC) member Ravindra Yati said, “ Teams are working on war footing and water supply will be normal by this evening.”
More than 80 major areas including Arera Colony, Char Imli, Shahpura, Shahjahanabad, Jawahar Chowk get water supply from Kolar line. But on Wednesday power supply from Manit and Mandideep feeder lines were disrupted, due to which filter Water Pump House and Raw-Water Pump House of Kolar Water Supply remained close. Thus, Municipal Corporation could not supply water on Thursday.
Corporation officials said that for now, water scarcity is being fulfilled with the help of water tankers and other sources in the more affected areas.
