Dharamgath: At a time when the state is reeling under heatwave condition, people in some places of Kalahandi are facing acute water scarcity.
Kalahandi district, villagers of Leter GP under Dharamgarh sub-division rely on the Udanti River for their daily water usage. Right from the sunrise locals have to struggle by digging pits on the river bank and collect water.
“Since the river bank gets dry easily we have to come for more than once to collect water. Many a time we suffer from different diseases which affect us due to consumption of unclean water. But we are helpless as time and again we have apprised various authorities about the situation but to no avail.
