Panaji – The tall claims made by Union Jal Shakti ministry that Goa is the first state in the Country to provide 100% tap water connections in rural areas is another “Jumala”. People in the villages still depend on their wells or nearby rivulets for daily consumption of water. People in Urban areas suffer as their taps go dry for weeks claimed North Goa District Congress President Vijay Bhike while condemning the annoucement of Union Jal Shakti minstry.
We challenge the Union Jal Shakti minister to walk the talk by visiting Goa. We will take him to various villages to make him realise the ground reality stated Vijay Bhike.
The annoucement of the Union Jal Shakti ministry is like rubbing salt on the village people who are putting hardships to pull water from the wells or walk a long distance to get water from nearby rivulets claimed Vijay Bhike.
The situation in Urban areas is still worst with taps going dry for weeks. Mapuca residents are suffering the most with no water or contaminated dirty water flowing through the taps. People staying in Panjim, Margao, Vasco and other cities are still facing acute water shortage stated Vijay Bhike.
BJP Government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power in 2014 with “Jumala Politics” propoganda and are continuing to do so till date by using all “Fake Tactics” to mislead and misguide the people. These false annoucements are made to create a fake feeling of “Acche Din” and to divert the attention of the people from Core issues which the BJP Government has failed to resolve stated Vijay Bhike.
I want to remind the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant that BJP Government had declared Goa as ” Open Defacation Free” when people still use their backyards or go in open places due to non-availability of toilets. Why Government is still ordering toilets if Goa is already ODF State questioned Vijay Bhike.
He said People of Goa are fedup with the Jumla Politics of BJP and will show them the place in 2022 assembly elections.
