LUCKNOW || Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mr Akhilesh Yadav has issued instructions to officials to install solar cycle potable water plants in 50 villages of Bundelkhand so that the water crisis in the region could be tackled.
These 50 plants would be part of a pilot project in the first phase. The chief minister issued these orders to the chief secretary and the principal secretary (Irrigation) in view of the utility of a similar solar cycle potable water plant in village Kurauni of the Sarojininagar development block in Lucknow.
