I think handing over essential services guaranteed by the Government to private agency in the name of efficiency and accountability reveals inability of government machinery and extra burden on consumers.
Late but not least. Good decision to handing over the water supply scheme to L&T the Reputed Company.
Best wishes to L&T.

It would appear that since the Belagavi Administration has for all these years Unable to solve the drinking water problem & woes of the general public, it is now in a helpless solution of handing over the contract of water supply to a private firm as L&T.
