WATER CRISIS MARS GANESHUTSAV CELEBRATIONS IN NERUL

water--3Ganesh Chaturthi pooja for hundreds of believers was marred due to no water supply in areas of Nerul. The issue was raised during the weekly NMMC Standing Committee meeting. Ironically, a few months back NMMC was awarded a prestigious award for 24 X 7 water supply in Navi Mumbai. When Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik had symbolically inaugurated the water supply from Morbe Dam till Vashi in March this year, everyone had believed that erratic and no water supply would become history for homes from CBD to Vashi. But turns out that this was wishful thinking too. In a rather embarrassing expose made at the NMMC Standing Committee meet, members attacked the administration for no water supply in most parts of Nerul due to which hundreds of devotees could not perform the arti on Ganesh Chaturthi. While the administration tried giving lame excuses, there is frustration and anger among devotees who attacked NMMC and said that forget 24 hours, they be given atleast 2 hours water supply. Ironically, this year NMMC was awarded an award from a Union Water Supply Dept. for 24 X 7 water supply in Navi Mumbai, which many now believe NMMC did not win on merit.
