On the occasion of World Water Day which is being celebrated across the globe on March 22, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Manipur Pradesh on Tuesday has demanded the state government to restructure the obsolete Irrigation & Flood Control Department (IFCD) in tune with Central Government’s mandate on national water policy.
Speaking to Imphal Times, General Secretary (Admin) of state BJP Unit, Moirangthem Asnikumar Singh has categorically stated that the present Congress government in Manipur has failed to frame water policy for the last 14 years.
“Water is must and it can change lives”, said the BJP leader while adding that the state is facing acute water scarcity due to state government’s failure of “water governance”.
While suggesting that IFCD should be restricted and named as Department of Water Resources Management, he said that rain water harvesting, water budgeting for the state with proper planning and technology is the need of the hour.
