Drinking water, irrigation related problems to be solved soon: Sarkaria

Garhshankar, September 8

The people of Garhshankar will be provided with better drinking water and irrigation arrangements, so that they do not have to face any problem. This was stated by Water Resources Minister Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria while addressing party workers at the residence of Congress leader Nimisha Mehta here on Monday.

He was welcomed by Mehta and her colleagues during his visit to Nimisha Mehta’s residence on Nangal Road in Garhshankar. Nimisha informed the minister about the drinking water and irrigation problems being faced by people in Garhshankar. She informed the minister that due to the shortage of water in the Kandi canal, the fertile land of farmers was turning barren. She urged him to direct the officials concerned to release water soon.

Nimisha urged the minister to install more tube wells for irrigation in villages and to get the faulty tube wells repaired. Meanwhile, Sukhbinder Singh ordered the officials of the departments concerned that water supply from the canal should be started at the earliest and that the process of sanctioning tube wells started soon.

Nimisha thanked Sarkaria for fulfilling the demand of getting the Nariala cho cleaned. She urged the minister that other choes in the area should also be cleaned so that people did not have to face problems. — OC
