Jodhpur (Rajasthan), May 13 (ANI): Locals of Chandelao village in Rajasthan's Jodhpur District have to queue up for hours at a time to fill water from the wells because of the acute water crisis in the region.

The water sources in the village are rain-dependent and have mostly dried up, as it has not rained yet in the area.

"There is a huge water crisis in the village. There are only two sources of water in the village, which have dried up. For filling water from those sources, we have to wait for four-five hours in the line and then also there is just 10-15 liters of water available for the entire village," said Raju, a local.

Water pipelines have been laid in the village but so far, they have not carried any water. (ANI)
