Anna Hazare’s village depends on water tankers
Anna Hazare’s village Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district, which gained prominence for its water conservation and watershed projects, is now affected by drought and is serviced by three water tankers. “Three tankers are supplying water to the village for the past one month. The last time the village saw water tankers was around three decades ago, before Anna implemented watershed projects in and around the village,” an aide of the social activist said.
Ralegan Siddhi is depending on tankers as its water resources have dried up, leaving Hazare, who pioneered watershed projects at the village in Ahmednagar, worried.
