BJP's Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi's right-hand man Amitbhai Anilchandra Shah may be given a key role in the party organisation. Shah could be given the responsibility of four states - Haryana, Maharashtra, Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand - which will go to polls later this year, say sources.

It is said that photographs speak louder than words. Seated beside Modi and party president Rajnath Singh at 'Ganga Aarti' yesterday, his position in the party needs no clarification.

He may not be a part of the government till he is exonerated from court cases, but he could be given a key position in the party in Delhi from where he can also control Modi's affairs in the PMO, sources said.

The term of Assemblies of Jharkhand and J&K ends be utilised properly,” said another villager, Jaidev. Safidon MLA Kali Ram Patwari (INLD), who lives in Morkhi, confirmed the water shortage. “I had raised the matter in the Assembly as well. We are trying to solve the water problems by repeatedly reminding the concerned officers.”

The story is similar in many villages, including Gangoli, Bashikhera, Khark Gaggar, Lalit Khera. Village women said they had to walk as much as 2 km to fetch water. They said they had brought the matter to the notice of the authorities, but no action has been taken.

Taking advantage of the situation, private water tanker owners are having a field day. As there’s no check on pricing, they have been selling water for Rs 10-Rs 20 for 15 litres of potable water. Many villagers said the water wasn’t filtered, as claimed by them.
