GUWAHATI | April 15, 2019:
People at Semkhor village in Assam are facing acute water crisis even after 70 years of independence. To meet their needs, the residents of this village collect water that drips from the mountains in pits.
The government has kept changing over the years, but no one has helped the village in ending the water crisis, the villagers said.
"We drink water which comes out of mountains. We do not have arrangements like tube well or anything by the government. People residing in the area are drinking water like this," said Sopesh Pathari, a resident of Semkhor village.
