The problem affects 35 crore people-issue are missing from elections…?

As soon as the summer season arrives, water becomes as precious as gold. 17% of the world's total population lives in India, but only 4% of the world's freshwater sources are available here. Out of the country's 140 crore population, 35 crore people do not have access to safe drinking water. But it is surprising that no leader has raised this serious issue nor has any political party even mentioned this problem in its manifesto. According to the niti aayog report, thousands of people in the country face severe water shortages. India's dependence on rain further increases this problem, as the arrival of the monsoon has now become uncertain. The problem of water shortage is also becoming serious due to climate change.
