While inaugurating the first water vending machine in October 2015, Panchayat and Public Health Engineering Department Minister, Subrata Mukherjee announced that almost 200 ‘water ATMs’ or water vending machines will be set up across Kolkata and its suburbs.
The project seeks to provide safe and clean drinking water to all sections of society.
Yesterday, a citizen of the City of Joy uploaded this on his Facebook status:
If we overlook the small sections of society, any progress will be impossible. The Kolkata government has understood it but there are many who still need to accept this fact.
