A local of the region, talking to ANI, claimed that they have been facing this problem of water scarcity since last 20 years.

"We do not have facility of water over last 20 years. We use the river's water, but it gets dried up in the summers. We face too many difficulties," the villager said.

"Many people have fallen ill in the village after consuming water from the available water bodies," he added.

The area is not only deprived of basic necessity like water but is also not under the ambit of government's welfare schemes.

It is reported that the district collector has taken cognizance of the crisis and has assured the villagers of providing clean water, which can be used for both drinking and household purposes. (ANI)
