Rayagada (Orissa), May 3 (ANI): Residents of Kashipur village and its surrounding areas in Orissa's Rayagada district are facing acute water shortage.
The residents face problems not only on account of drinking water but also for bathing and washing clothes.
They say water pipeline and tube wells are not working and people have to get water from outside the village.
"We are facing huge water shortage in our village. All the Villagers have to travel two kilometres to get water. Two tube wells are here but they are not working," said Chakiti Jhadia, a resident.
Most of the tube wells and hand pumps in the area have dried up due to decreasing ground water level.
"We are facing lot of problem, nobody listens to us and nor do they provide any facilities to us," said Manika Nair, a local.
Surrounding villages like Chaata Aamba, Masuri Padar and Anajhor also suffer from acute water scarcity. (ANI)
