Gap between total & treated sewage hurting water sources’
Everyone talks about water. The government talks about water. NGOs talk about clean drinking water, if the people do not get water for a single day, there will be a huge hue-and-cry. If you look at the literature of our country, you will find no information at all about sewage. No one in the government talks about it. My own sense is that we are a casteist society and the business of sewage has been left to someone who is not us. We are also a very arrogant society which believes once the infrastructure for sewage disposal has been created, everything will be alright. It is to correct this attitude that the CSE decided to look into this whole problem.
