Government sets target of providing clean drinking water to all by 2024



The Centre has set a target of providing clean drinking water to all by 2024, Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said Tuesday. He said the government is formulating a plan to provide clean drinking water to nearly 14 crore households. There are nearly 14 crore households where clean drinking water is yet to reach, Shekhawat told reporters here. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his poll campaign, had promised to integrate all ministries that look after water-related issues into one ministry. The BJP had also promised to provide clean drinking water to all households in the country. Shekhawat held discussions with officials and ministers from several states looking after water-related issues. He said an emphasis will also be made on water conservation, citing the widening gap between water supply and demand.
