Pithoragarh, October 29
Villagers in Tamli areas of Champawat district and Askot area of Pithoragarh are taking drinking water from open natural sources as pipe water schemes have failed to take off. “The 13 villages of the Garkha area of Didihat subdivision have remained without piped water as two schemes envisaged for these villages have not been implemented since the last one month,” said Mahiman Singh Kanyal, a social worker in the Garkha area of the subdivision.

According to Chief Development Officer of the district Rajiv Langhar, he had inspected the projects last month and issued orders to the concerned departments to remove roadblocks, if any. But despite this the problem persisted.
The villagers have informed the CDO that they are fetching water from a 5 km distance as the pipeline has been damaged. The villagers of Tamli, Bachkot, Polap, Chami and Nakhchula are facing an acute shortage of drinking water from last month and have threatened to lock department offices if the water flow from these pipes was not restored soon,” said Joshi.
