By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Siddramaiah Government giving Anna Bhagya has forgotten to give Jala Bhagya . Without Jala Bhagya Anna Bhagya May not work. The DelhI Jal Borad has earned 178 crore more despite they have given 20,000/- liters free to each house hold in Delhi. BWSSB need to learn from DJB .A third of the population of Detroit had faced having their water supplies disconnected because they were unable to pay their bills, a situation that the United Nations has called "an affront to human rights” and in the similar way BWSSB water supplies disconnected for poor Bangalore people unable to pay their bills is an "an affront to human rights ”and BWSSB should stop disconnection drive. BWSSB is terrorizing the citizens of Bangalore for collection of domestic water bill dues. By sending 40 persons before each house for collection of dues.. Let BWSSB clarify under what rules it has sent 40 people to harass Banshankari residents to pay the bill or face disconnection of water ?.Is it Dadageri or Gundagardi of BWSSB? End Pay for domestic water policy in India. "Pay for domestic water policy by BWSSB is an unethical infringement on basic human rights." fee-free domestic water is a basic human right .BBMP is collecting taxes and is duty bound to provide free domestic water . BWSSB is sending reportedly 40 people to each house hold to collect water bill dues or disconnect the water connection and this forcible collection of bills from poor people is violation of human rights and attract criminal cases against BWSSB and its officers . On Saturday one of the the resident from Banshankari II stage called frantically to BWSSB office and news reporters and reported the matter. Water is a human right! Water needed for drinking, cooking and basic hygiene as basis for survival must be available even for a person unable to pay. Government is for protection of life and property of its citizen and even if some one has not aid water bill government cannot disconnect the water which amounts to disconnection a person from his life .Disconnecting water is nothing but murder of a person. If one asks about the legal basis: the right to life is an essential part in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Art 3). And with Article 24 expressing the right to a standard of living adequate for human health, it is clear that this is about truly safe water. Bangalore police should file FIR against BWSSB officers under attempt to murder clauses of IPC for this willful blunder of disconnecting water causing threat to life of citizens of Bangalore on complaint of citizens affected.State Government and BWSSB need to follow forBangalore and other cities in Karnataka to provide 20 Kilo literof water per month, per household, along with associated sewerage services, free to residents similar to that oftheDelhi government model to provide 20 Kilo literof water per month, per household, along with associated sewerage services, free to residents of Delhi who have a water connection.
