Celeberities and Citizens Fume Regarding "Water Crisis" in the city

The water supply in many parts of sub-urban Mumbai has been impacted due to damaged  water pipe. The line was damaged at JVLR Metro 6 line on 29th Jan by contractor of Metro 6. 

Andheri (both East and West), Vile Parle, Jogeshwari and parts of Kandivali are some of the areas that are getting low or no water supply.  Citizens have been fuming regarding the same and asking the government to provide some relief. 

Talking to Mumbai Live, Santosh a resident in Vile Parle said, "There has not been a single drop of water since the last three days. I had to go get drinking water from the shop near the station and for that too one had to stand in line for more than 30 minutes. There are no tankers available and the laundary has been put on hold indefinately".

Santosh is not alone, even some celebrities took to their social media handle to complain about what they are terming as "Water crisis" Richa Chadha took to her Twitter to share a video of the water tankers near her building. She even went on to say, "Can see water tankers every few kms on the road", Furthermore, she questioned, "suburbs, including in my neighbourhood. Priorities dear Gov ? 😲🤔"

Even actress Urvashi Dholakia too mocked the situation. She wrote:

The work for the pipeline is ongoing and BMC has assured that the work will be done tonight and water supply will resume later tonight. 

A lot of people complimented BMC for making this work. Even BMC thanked people for their patience
