The sale of water by farmers to water dealers in Chennai severely affects the local people. The water is taken from nearby towns and from villages to the north of the city using a fleet of over 13,000 water tankers. Due to this trade, the water levels have dropped drastically in all these towns and villages.
The water that is traded is not only used for agriculture but also for the drinking water supplies of the villagers. Hence, the local people can object to this trade of water.
Yes, it is only the government who can sort out this problem. The government needs to help the people of the city by providing them adequate water. This help with shut down the private companies' unfair means of earning profits from supplying water.
