Water crisis in Peren Town

20th May, 2016

ACAUT Nagaland supports the silent procession by public of Peren Town to express their resentment against the lackadaisical attitude of the Nagaland Government and the PHED department. ACAUT Nagaland further extends it solidarity with the plight of the people of Peren Town who are facing an acute water shortage; it is incomprehensible that in these this age, the people of Peren Town are struggling for basic amenities like water for drinking. Although on numerous occasions, this problem had been highlighted to the PHED department and the government of Nagaland, it seemed to have fallen on deaf ears as the people have not received even a single drop of water for several months now. The citizens of Peren Town are being forced to resort to drastic measures as they simply have no means to penetrate the thick skin of the Nagaland Government.

ACAUT Nagaland wholeheartedly backs the demands of the people of Peren Town to the Hon’ble Minister for PHED constitute a ‘Special Investigating Team’ to study and consider the matter with utmost urgency for restoration of clean Water supply.
