The issue of lack of infrastructure in government schools in Telangana has once again surfaced when the above data was presented in Rajya Sabha recently.
According to its mission statement, the Jal Jeevan Survekshan intends to assist, empower and provide Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTC) to every rural household by 2024.
In Sada village in Narmada district summer, women would have to walk one-and-a-half kilometres between the river and their homes many times over to fetch water.
Meanwhile, the State has provided tap water connection to 3,903 scheduled caste majority villages and 19,226 scheduled tribe majority villages in the aspirational districts.
As many as 1.64 lakh tap connections will be provided in Bapatla rural at an estimated cost of Rs 202 crore under the Jal Jeevan Mission.
The CM had laid foundation stones of 110 mega drinking water projects in 2019.
