Under the Vasmo scheme in the northern part of Kadana, the scheme of piped water supply to homes seems to be confined to government books. This is because the villagers are alleging corruption on a large scale in the works done here under the Vasmo scheme.
The operation carried out by VASAMO in about 25 villages of Kadana taluka will see pipelines, water tanks and water taps in every house, but till independence not a drop of water came in this tap.
Here women have to struggle for a bed with water which is not yet available. The matter was informed to the authorities by the local people, but their representations were not heeded.
The special thing is that crores of rupees have been allocated under this scheme. But it didn’t work out. The villagers allege that the sarpanches, officials and contractors have hatched a conspiracy of corruption.
The pipeline has been laid. But the work has been very careless. Only 30 to 40 per cent work has been done in the village and 100 per cent work on government books has been completed. Pipelines have been laid to supply water to the houses. Villagers allege that till date not even a drop of water has come in the tap.
