Pithampur (Mhow) (Madhya Pradesh)
The district collector, Pawan Jain has written to the principal secretary, the water resources department, asking him to hand over the Sanjay Reservoir, which is under the irrigation department, to the Pithampur municipality.
At present, water is supplied from Sanjay Reservior to Pithampur municipality and the Madhya Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation. The municipality wants to deepen the reservoir and also beautify it so that it becomes a tourist spot but is unable to do so as it is under the irrigation department. Earlier, the water from the reservoir was used for irrigation purposes, but that has now stopped.
In the letter, collector Jain argues that the Pithampur municipality is in a better position to maintain and utilise the reservoir than the irrigation department, hence its control should be handed over to the municipality.
