Rajasthan: Several regions in Rajasthan including Bhilwara, Kota are facing water shortages as the temperature is rising day-by-day. In one of the regions in Bhilwara, the situation has worsened so much that people have installed water pumps in a well and connected them through pipelines to their homes to get access to water. This has happened in Bhilwara's Phuliyakala region.

At any given point in time, at least 15 water pumps are seen installed in the well by the people so that they can get access to water.

Meanwhile, in Rajasthan's Kota, reports are that the Alania Dam, which is spread in around 5 km area in this region has dried up.

The situation has become so bad that farm labourers who are involved in the wheat crop process don't even have access to drinking water.

The labourers are forced to walk 3 km towards the centre of the dam where a hole has been diged into the earth's surface to get access to the drinking water. There are no other options to get water.
