Protest against National Water Policy

A protest against the National Water Policy 2012, organised by the People’s Campaign for Right to Water-Karnataka, a community-based organisation in the City on Friday, received an overwhelming response with a total of 3,090 people taking part in it. Similar protests were held in 22 other districts of the State. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Kshithij Urs, a member of the organisation, said the new National Water Policy, 2012 sets a dangerous precedent by promoting anti-people practices which would be detrimental even to the future generations. The policy snatches away the people’s right to water.
