  1. “Right to water” does not mean that the government HAS to provide me water wherever I choose to live. It has to be reasonable and these shanty’s are, but there has to be some onus on those who choose to move to an area that doesn’t have water established and then cry foul after the fact. Don’t move there!!

  2. I am from rural India, and I don't have access to clean water.

    Life of poor people in India revolves around procuring and storing water(that too not so clean water)

  3. This is all due to overpopulation. Bring 2 child policy in populated states. Only BJP can do this. Other parties are just scared for their vote banks. BJP has done this in UP and Assam.

  4. Can easily relate to it. Just few years back, I used to carry water on my shoulders from a leaking pipeline around a mile away daily. Today I have access to purified water for drinking.

  5. In Indian villages the wasted water of cities are chemically treated and turned into clean water and brought to villages with drought. lakes are filled with this water to increase ground water these government projects are in South India it should be applied to the north
