the phone fell into the pond while taking a selfie
When information on the matter was extracted, it was found that on Monday, Food Officer Rajesh Vishwas had gone to the Kherkatta Paralkot Pond with his family for a holiday. Here Rajesh was trying to click selfie of him while he was standing near the pond. But only then did the lord’s expensive phone overflow the pond and fall into the frozen water. The water filled up to about 15 feet. What was then, the great campaign to get the phone out of the reservoir began. That lasted 3 whole days.
Irresponsible response from the food inspector.
In this case, when Food Inspector Rajesh Vishwas said, “My phone fell into the pond while I was taking a selfie. The phone could not be found even after much effort on the part of the divers. After speaking to SDO Resources Water, he said that water is not used, so 5 feet of water was taken out. After which the phone has been found. Here, when the subdivision officer of the Department of Water Resources was surrounded by questions, he said that permission was given only verbally, but so far the water has been emptied up to 10 feet.
millions liters of wasted water
In this way, so much water was wasted just because of a government official’s expensive phone. Perhaps the cost of this officer’s expensive phone is more than the livelihood of hundreds of farmers in the area, who thoughtlessly wasted irrigation water even in the scorching May summer season.
