Mandatory Potable Water Standards across India
Today there is news where Consumer Affairs Minister himself is saying that Delhi Jal Board water in Delhi does not meet standards and is not drinkable.
Why in the first places have these potable water standards not been made mandatory.
It is Govts job to mandate and enforce. Every municipality has to follow the same. it needs to be in KRAs of a city mayor and municipal commissioner.
Please use peoples support for such a cause and put pressure on municipalities.
