A battle for survival: To quench thirst, residents of Assam's Semkhor village collect water dripping from mountains

Dima Hasao (Assam), Apr 15 (ANI): People residing in Semkhor village of Assam are facing acute water crisis even after 70 years of independence. To meet their needs, the residents of this village collect water that dips form the mountains in pits.

Their sufferings do not end here: the locals have to travel over a kilometer to fetch water every day. The local further underscored that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has constructed toilets but not provide water in them.

While speaking to ANI, a resident of village said, "We have a big water problem. We have requested the government department but they did not do anything.

We travel one kilometer to get clean water".
