Only on papers: Drinking water connections provided to all schools, Anganwari centres

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 18: Like other welfare schemes which exist only on official files, the Jammu and Kashmir government has also provided functional drinking water connections to all schools and Anganwari centres on papers.
In official documents the ‘efficient’ administration has provided functional drinking water connections to all government schools and Anganwari centres but, the situation is entirely different on the ground. Except for providing water connections on papers, nothing has been done because the present dispensation is working only on social media and papers.
Highly placed sources said that directions were issued to Jal Shakti Department to provide functional water connections to all government schools. “Without providing exact data of the number of total schools and Anganwari centres, higher-ups of the Jal Shakti department were directed to provide water connections to all schools”, sources said and added that instead of formulating a coordination team comprising officials of Education, Social Welfare, Rural Department and Jal Shakti department to accomplish the task Babus only issued directions without realizing the ground reality.
Important to mention here that on June 15, the J&K Government had directed to provide functional drinking water connections to all schools and Anganwari centres within one month.
The Chief Secretary of J&K, Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta, while chairing a meeting to review the progress achieved under the centrally sponsored scheme ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ in Jammu and Kashmir, on June 15, had directed completing the phase II and III of Jal Jeevan Mission.
The Chief Secretary had directed that School Sanitation Programme be initiated in consultation with School Education Department. Reviewing the quality standards of water being provided under the Mission, the Chief Secretary asked the Department to test the water quality on 15 parameters identified by the Bureau of Indian Standards, within 15 days at both water source and filtration plant. He asked the Department to evolve a water quality management mechanism to regularly monitor water quality at various stages of distribution.
