The tap water supplied from Nepal Drinking Water Corporation is found mixed with filth since last three months in Bhadrapur Municipality-8, Jhapa district.
Due to lack of clean drinking water, the local residents in the town are affected. Toya Gadtaula, a local resident, said their repeated pleas made to officials of Corporation are unheard. “We lodged our complaints several times for the supply of filthy water. But, it is not addressed so far,” he said.
The local residents have accused Corporation of playing with public health issues by supplying murky water for months. Meanwhile, Chief of Nepal Drinking Water Corporation Office in Bhadrapur Ram Kumar Shrestha has pledged to supply clean and safe drinking water in ten days.
He has made commitment to replace old pipes with the new ones in the town and install water treatment plants to ensure supply of clean drinking water.
