Drinking Water Project for Mirik Still Incomplete after 22 years

Drinking Water Project for Mirik Still Incomplete after 22 years
Drinking Water Project for Mirik Still Incomplete after 22 years: It has been 22 years since the then Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council started to develop the erstwhile Rai Dhap as the drinking water source for Mirik. The DGHC does not exist any more, it has been 3 years since the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration took over the administration in our hills.

BUT people in Mirik are still devoid of clean and safe drinking water.
The project was taken up by Manjushree Company and construction started from the beginning of May, 1992 but the work got stopped, without completion.

In 2010 the work was restarted by Surya India Pvt Ltd but and the work was supposed to be completed by 2012, but its past half-way into 2014 and the project is no where near completion.

In the past one month we have highlighted around 10 infrastructural deficiencies that is plaguing Mirik, but there has not even been a word of response from either Bimal Gurung Official, Mamata Banerjee SS Ahluwalia, representatives from Mirik Municipality or any other politician.

It is a shame that the politicians who are supposed to take care of our place and thump their chest citing our place, have not even bothered to come and check out the situation for themselves or at get their minions to inquire and get the work done.
