Shimla: Residents protest after city's water woes turn grim

Updated 30 May 2018 09:57 AM

Himachal Pradesh High Court today ordered a halt to construction activity and banned car washing for a week in core areas of the parched state capital to save water even as Facebook messages asked tourists to stay away.
The court, which yesterday decided to intervene in the town's water crisis, today came out with stringent curbs as local residents posted keep-off-Shimla messages on social media.
There is no water for us, please do not come here and select some other destination, one of them said.
The population of Shimla Municipal Corporation area is about 1.72 lakh but it swells by between 90,000 and one lakh during the peak tourist season in summer.
The requirement of water increases to 45 million litres a day (MLD) during this season.
