Water is the basic need and has to be fulfilled – Jaykumar Gore.    [News help By Mr. Amit Bhise]:
Dahiwadi (17 Jan 2010) : “Water is the basic need of human civilization and it is the moral responsibility of a politician or a regional leader to fulfill it. That is precisely the reason for 3 lacks of water-thirsty voters of Maan to elect me as their leader and I promise to live up to their expectations” says our newly elected MLA.

The independently elected Member of Legislative Assembly from Maan-Khatav constituency, Jaykumar Gore, was addressing the press at his Dahiwadi regional office today. “The state Welfare Minister Ramraje Naik-Nimbalkar has the audacity to come here in Dahiwadi and tell people that he is ‘ready’ to give water?” asked our furious MLA. “Water should be provided and I’ll make sure that it happens. I won’t ever indulge into any of his affairs and he shouldn’t interfere in my constituency”.

The press meeting was scheduled soon after the reported visit of the neighboring constituency of Phaltan’s MLA and the current state Welfare minister Ramraje Naik-Nimbalkar’s visit to Dahiwadi and his willingness to provide water to the southern part of Satara.

“Our culture has taught us to give respect and have respect in return. The minister is aged than me and I respect him as an elderly person. Using an abusive language filled with profanity will not be entertained. He’ll be answered back in the same way” said the MLA maintaining his decorum in a public speech.

He further blamed the minister of keeping the people of this region away from their rightful share of water by adding “He (Naik-Nimbalkar) was a minister at the water supply department for 15 long years but he purposely delayed the water supply schemes that could’ve proved as a boon for people in Maan-Khatav region”. He reminded the people “The then chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh had approved the Tondle - Warugad road development and Dahiwadi rural hospital buildings’ work while I was a district council member. Even after getting the orders signed by higher authorities our dear minister did nothing but delayed it”.

“I’ve seen a lot of ups and downs in my political career and I wouldn’t fall prey to his menace. I’m practical and handle the situation with a realistic approach” concluded Mr. Gore.

The visit has raised a lot of speculations as it’s considered to be a result of the defeat of NCP’s candidate in the last assembly elections. It is to be noted here that the current MLA was, or still could be, an NCP party worker. But the election was won independently after being denied the ticket.

It is to be seen whether ‘we the people of Mandesh’ finally get water running in our farms or do we get to only witness the political talks?

Mandesh still parched, rains truant raises worries [Help by Vijay Ghutukade]:
Aug 2008 : The southwest monsoon is lashing all over the Maharashtra incessantly since last few days, many of the rivers in state have started flowing full stream, but its difficult to believe that Manganga is still dry retaining people in the region worrisome. While it is raining all over the nature has imparted hardships for Man's honest peoples. The shoratage of rainfall is posing a great challenge for drinking water and fodders for animals forget about agriculture.

Man’s agricultural outlook seems totally grim. As per the weekly sowing trends report for the Kharif 2008 released by Department of Agriculture, Government of Maharashtra (GoM), out of 25800 hectares kharif area in Man only 910 hectares or 3.53% area has been brought under cultivation up to August 13, 2008 since the onset of monsoon on 1st June.

Kharif 2008 Sowing In Man Taluka as on August 13, 2008

Crop <> Normal <> Sown <> % Of sown to Normal
Total Cereals <> 21100 <> 90 <> 0.43%
Total Pulses <> 3300 <> 54 <> 1.64%
Total Oilseeds <> 300 <> 0 <> 0.00%
Cotton <> 900 <> 624 <> 69.33%
Sugarcane <> 200 <> 142 <> 71.00%
All Crops <> 25800 <> 910 <> 3.53%

Area in hectares Source: Department of Agriculture, GoM

The state of Maharashtra may be developed state in the country but Man has continued to be underdeveloped. The migration to other places for livelihood would be highest in region. After 45 years of independence we received electricity (around 1990 GoM, started implementing rural electrification programme in Man), after 55 years we got connected through phones and mobiles to rest of the country, but what about water, inter alia, so many other basic needs? Can anybody answer how long we will have to wait for water? Mans peoples have to watch and read the news’s on heavy, widespread rains, floods through Doordarshan and news papers only, but unfortunately they cant experience it.

I would strongly recommend to all my dear friends on Mandesh Community to uphold the water issue on the top of reform agenda in their vision for Man.

Mhasawad [02 Jan 2008] No Electricity all over man taluka around 12 Hours:
Problem occurred in the 132K.V. main line coming from Phaltan. There was no electric power continously 12hours. Man Taluka gets electricity from Dahiwadi substation. Dahiwadi substation gets supply form Phaltan. Between Dahiwadi and Phaltan there are 132K.V. main lines. Within a week two times system failed. On Wednesday morning 7:15 AM problem occurred and that was corrected around 6:00 PM evening. That means around 12 Hours there was no electricity. On 31 Dec also there was no electricity around 8 hours. Current equipments available at Dahiwadi substation are very old (around 25 years old), and also we need some alternative for 132K.V. Supply which comes from Phaltan.

After 20 years Manganga is outflowing-ETV News [News help : Mr. V. Ghutukade]:
The Sangola taluka administration has sounded a flood alert in all villages on the banks of River MANGANGA in Sangola, of Solapur district owing to flood situation in manganga river. The situation emerged due to the heavy rain in phaltan, man and Sangola. Public announcements are being made in these villages asking families in low-lying areas to shift to safer areas and to take care of their things.

The Manganga, a tributary of the Bhima, rises in the Tita hill in the north-east of Man. Of a total length of about 100 miles, about forty lie in Man within Satara limits. In Man the river runs southeast by Malvadi, Andhli, Dahivadi, and Mhasvad. Beyond Satara limits the Manganga continues to run south-east through Atpadi, and from Atpadi it turns north-east through Sangola and Pandharpur in Sholapur, and falls into the Bhima at Sarkoli about ten miles south-east of Pandharpur. During the rains within the Man sub division the water of the Manganga runs two to six feet deep. In the fair season it is about two feet deep in some places and almost dry in others. The bed is sandy and the banks highly eroded. In some parts near the river banks crops of sugarcane, groundnut, wheat, sweet potatoes, and onions are raised by pats or fair-weather channels. My mother told me that, people around mhaswad grow watermelon on river bed when its starts to dry.

In city some businessmen and some residence uses the small pumps to get water faster by connecting them directly to the pipeline, and they store water around 8 to 10 thousand liter. But poor residence facing problem of store water because they don\'t have any storage and these peoples facing the problem. But corporation takes Rs.800 from each as who stores 8-10 Thousand Liter water also and who not stores 8-10 Thousand liter water also. Peoples are not happy on this as they saying people who are using more water they should charged more and people who suing less water they should charged less. In last holidays few women’s went to corporation office about facing problem of water.
