Many are blaming corruption for a severe water crisis in Dang.
Dang receives the highest rainfall level in all of Gujarat. Yet the abundant resource has gone missing. Faulty dams, untested equipment and poor management have allowed water resources to leak. Residents of Dang say corruption—not quality—was prioritized in constructing the region’s water system. Now, Dang’s population faces a devastating drought.
The dam at Kothida, Bharud Pura, Dhar district, Madhya Pradesh took just a year to get a crack. More than 11 surrounding villages are at risk now due to this leakage and residents are asked to vacate the area.
The Farmers from Dhondegaon village in Nashik district have been visiting NDCC (Nashik District Girna Co-Operative Bank) repeatedly to finish their loan account for the last 2 years.
