Murbad's water woes - drought just near our city!
Not just Latur, Vidharba and Marathwada are facing drought issues in the state, but Murbad's Dasai village – just 100 km from Mumbai is facing a similar drought problem.

The severe drought in the villages – Rampur and Durgapur which are part of this Dasai locality, has forced the villagers to fetch water from as far as 7 kms. At some places, water tankers are called in to fill the wells which have turned dry. The daring youngsters – both male and females in this villages, in turn, risk their lives by climbing down the well to fetch water provided by these water tankers once a week.

Dhasai, claimed to be among the earliest villages to have implemented cash-less transactions, is now facing an acute water shortage. Some reports even suggest that authorities are not supplying water to the village regularly, making excuse of the model code of conduct due to ongoing Lok Sabha elections. ADC Photographer Santosh Gupta highlights their water woes.
