DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION, in a late evening order issued yesterday, imposed ban on private construction activity in view of the prevailing water crisis. District Magistrate Vivek Aggarwal issued this order under Section 144 of CrPC for the purpose.

Mayor Dr Uma Shashi Sharma had urged District Collector yesterday to ban all construction work for the time being. The Mayor and Municipal Commissioner Vinod Sharma had stressed on compulsory power cut for two hours when water is distributed, since a lot of people draw water directly from the pipes, which affects the supply down the line.

However, the MPEB was not game and wanted compensation to the tune of Rs 22 lakh for the period it was forced not to supply
power.

The commissioner said that the IMC did not have that kind of money to spare, but added that they were trying to find ways out of it and had written to the chief minister, energy minister and senior MPEB officials and expected a solution within a few days.
