Every day I used to walk from my home to Kundannur Junction through the side road of NH 47 and back which comes around 5 kilometers. Morning walks helps my body to control the cholostrol level, blood pressure, sugar etc. and also I am getting self confidence. It is a regular scene near the Mercedez Benz car showroom that drinking water is wasting from a pipe erected by the Kerala Water Authority in both ends of a canal. Following are the pathetic condition of the pipes and wastage of water.
In the following picture, some body tried to prevent the flow of drinking water by using the plastic coated paper, by in vain.
Now thousands of people in Vypin and surrounding areas are facing acute shortage of drinking water. They will have to spent hours near the public tap for getting water. Water may come only during the mid night. Some times the long queue of people with buckets ends with quarrel among themselves. Agitations were conducted by them by participating thousands of ladies and children. Political parties have not seen taken this as a major issue as they wants people at the time of elections for getting their votes. The people in these areas still facing shortage of drinking water.
Being the situation, hundreds of litres of water is wasting from the pipes every day for the last one year. No body has taken care for rectifying the leakage. In my opinion, the authorities should take necessary urgent steps to stop the wastage of drinking water.
On sunday morning when I reached Kundannur Junction, Fire Force peoples struggling to clear the oil & diesel from the road which spread in connection with the accident. Following are some pictures.
