It has also started waste water recycling and the recycled water is used to water roadside plants and trees. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has also proposed to make rainwater harvesting mandatory in big housing complexes. After coming to power in 2011, Mamata Banerjee had asked all the municipalities to explore the possibility of withdrawing unfiltered water from various sources like rivers and other water bodies, filtering it and using it for drinking. Most of the municipalities along river Hooghly are now drawing unfiltered water from the river, purifying it and sending it to the households through pipelines. The Jalashree scheme has helped the people provide water to their farmlands during drought. This has been made possible with close monitoring by the state Irrigation and Waterways department. Meanwhile, under the Jal Dharo-Jal Bharo scheme hundreds of water bodies throughout the state have been cleaned and upgraded. In the vast areas of Sundarbans and the hills, the project has helped the farmers irrigate their land and thereby increase their produce.last_img read more

Singh, a five-time MP and currently MLA from Chanchoda, further said, “This (apology) would make his (Gandhi’s) stature taller.
