Selling Rivers

I came to know that Some states Government started selling rivers to multinational companies of their states.Government doing this as they cant bear the cost of purefying water from the river.And because of this river they are giving to handle the project to multinational companies and this company wil take huge tax from the local people and will give water.And half amount will go to the government.This is the very bad thing our people are not only getting water of their own land.Its very bad.Government should stop this kind of stupid work which cause harm to the people.I have heard that Maharashtra Government is soon going to make contract in this regard.

    government should rather take some steps to clean the water in the river than to sell it out to the MNCs…think of those who cannot afford to pay the tax on water will they survive without water…

    It is a contract which the govt. has handed over to the prvate company. Instead of paying for the project to the company, the company has asked the company to take the project fees from the revenues generated from the river.

    After alll will the company do a free job. Anyway this concept is called Build-operate-Transfer, which has been in practice for several decades.

    Imagine the day when the local people will have to pay tax on water.How will the people survive then?

    The virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize.
