Access to Safe Drinking water has been declared as a Human Right by the United Nations General Assembly on the 28 July 2010.
But this right has remained an unfulfilled dream for the villagers of Takanwari (Dar Mohalla) of Ganderbal District, Kashmir. The population of over 700 souls face acute problem of safe drinking water facility. People fetch water from a nearby stream which is impure and can cause epidemic in the whole village.
Locals blame the administration of negligence and reluctant attitude. Women education has badly been affected by the non-availability of drinking water as women folk remain busy in fetching water from a nearby stream.
