Bharatpur. There is also a town in Rajasthan where women have been bringing drinking water from the crematorium for about 40 years. The matter is related to three to four areas of Bayana town of Bharatpur district. Here in the cremation ground, where the pyre keeps burning on one side, on the other side women keep filling water there. Due to the excessive amount of fluoride in the water supplied by the water supply department in the area, people do not drink it. The amount of fluoride is so high that it bursts when put in milk. That’s why the local people use this water only for bathing and washing purposes.
The local people complained about this from the water supply department to the public representatives, but till now the louse has not crawled on anyone’s ear.
According to the information, there is a problem of drinking water in front of about 600 families in Bamanpura, Mahadev Gali, Gangapada and Kachhipada areas of Bayana town. The women of these families have to go to the crematorium 1 kilometer away to get drinking water. This problem is in front of these families for almost 40 years. But for the last 15 years, this problem has assumed a frightening form. To bring water, the children and women of the family start struggling since morning so that they can get drinking water throughout the day.
more concerned with quenching thirst than filling the stomach
Working class people live in these areas. But they are more concerned about quenching thirst than filling their stomach. Therefore, getting up first thing in the morning, the people here go to the crematorium, 1 kilometer away across the railway line, to fill water. There are two hand pumps in the cremation ground. It is crowded here throughout the day. After the arrangement of drinking water, women and men go for wages.
High fluoride content in water
In these areas, the water supply department is currently supplying water from borewells, but the amount of fluoride in that water is high. Due to the high salinity in it, it is not fit to drink. According to locals, if they put the supplied water in milk, it bursts. Apart from this, after drinking it, he started getting minor diseases. So they use this water only for bathing and washing clothes.
The officials of water supply department know well
According to people, about 30 years ago, Gambhir river used to pass through Bayana. Due to this, water was supplied to the entire Bayana. But now borebells have been installed in its downstream area. From there water is supplied. But the borebels are such that salt water comes in them. The officials of the water supply department are well aware of this fact, even after that they are supplying the same water.
