THE DE­LAY

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Both the NMMC ad­min­is­tra­tion and the rul­ing NCP led by for­mer min­is­ter Ganesh Naik had for years been claim­ing that since the city owns its own dam, the city is as­sured of 24x7 wa­ter sup­ply and there will not be any wa­ter short­age for the next 50 years

How­ever, de­spite be­low av­er­age rain­fall there was no timely mea­sure taken and hence the city is now fac­ing ad­e­quate wa­ter short­age and con­se­quently cut in the month of De­cem­ber as well.

Res­i­dents are say­ing that if not for 24 hours, they should at least get wa­ter for reg­u­lar use, which too is not hap­pen­ing now. Ev­ery day, there are ar­eas in the city where peo­ple do not get any sup­ply of wa­ter.
