Lucknow, April 11 (H.S.). Jal Shakti Minister Swatantradev Singh said that neither in the Congress and SP governments, neither at the Center nor in the state, no work has been done on water supply. Jal Jeevan Mission has given a new direction to the development of the country and the state in the present times. Water has reached homes from taps in less than three years.

Talking to reporters at the BJP office, State President Swatantradev Singh said that on August 15, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had talked about the protection and conservation of water from the Red Fort. The Prime Minister had expressed confidence of clean water supply and said that even after 70 years of independence, people had to yearn for water. Concern was expressed over the situation in Bundelkhand, where work has been done on water from taps. Prior to the tenure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, only 16 percent of the households had access to drinking water from taps. When the Jal Jeevan Mission was started on the instructions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, 49 percent of the houses have been provided with tap water.

Swatantra Dev Singh said that the central and state governments are doing a lot for the welfare of the poor and downtrodden. In order to bring them into the mainstream of the society, the government is making arrangement of drinking water from house to house along with providing pucca houses. Not only this, work is also being done to provide education to their children. House to house toilets were constructed, while free ration is also being given to them for almost two years.

The Jalshakti Minister said that work is being done for the welfare of the poor and downtrodden in the central and state governments. Efforts are on to bring the poor and downtrodden in the mainstream of the society. The government wants them to get pucca houses and at the same time every house should have clean water supply. Education should be provided to children, toilets should be constructed, every poor should get free ration, happiness should come to everyone’s house.

Appealing to him, he said that I want the people of the state to cooperate with the government and do not waste water unnecessarily while making proper use of water. Now enough water has to be given to the coming generation. The government of double engine is thinking about the people and is working towards making Atal ji’s dream come true. The Ken-Betwa link project is dedicated to Atal ji.
