Compulsory water conservation slogans on Bhopal hoardings
Bhopal: Faced with an acute water crisis, Bhopal’s civic boy has made it mandatory for every advertising hoarding to have slogans encouraging conservation of water.
The Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to promote the campaign by educating people on the importance of water, a BMC official said.
All advertisers have been directed to put up slogans on conserving water. “Those failing to abide by the corporation’s directives would be penalised.”
There are over 3,000 hoardings in the city although only a third of them are legal.
“The corporation has also made it mandatory to write slogans related to water conservation on every press release sent by it. The idea behind the decision is to create awareness among the people,” BMC Commissioner Manish Singh said.
The government has chalked out a plan to assess the demand and supply of water in the 23,000 villages in the state.
The level of water consumption from wells, tube wells, tanks and rivers is being reviewed. An inventory of the water available is also being prepared, said Public Health Engineering Minister Rampal Singh.
