Quality of water supplied: People of Mysore Vs. MCC

February 9th, 2006

At the risk of sounding repetitive,I will come to the same topic regarding quality of drinking water supplied to us by MCC.

A month back, I had suggested there should be a mechanism to check the veracity of claims made by MCC regarding the quality of water supplied .Most of times, it ends up as a fight between MCC Vs. Voluntary body like ACIM. As we have found , it is too serious a matter to be left to the whimsical attitude of the officails. I had suggested an independent well respected institution like ,say, IISC, should test the sample of water supplied and make the results public. We should be able to take the matter to C.M. who seems to be pro-active and get this rEsolved once and for all. With typhoid raging already and god knows what else is in store for Mysoreans ,it's time the shadow boxing is stopped and one gets to nitty-gritty of things.

Finally, one question for which I would be grateful, if somebody can enlighten me..... If the Commissioner / MCC stonewall all alleggations, give slipshod answers, don't generally care, is there no 'HOPE' for its citizenry? Can't higherups intervene? What's the solution?

Do we have to have some corpses of school children in front of us before some action from higherups can be expected to throw out inefficient , and more importantly callous officials?
