Directions (Q1- Q5): Read the following paragraph and answer the questions given below:
Safe drinking water and hygienic environment are the basic minimum requirements of every citizen, whether he lives in the plains or in the hills, in a town or a village. From time immemorial, all human settlements have sprung up only where drinking water was available. However, with the increase in population and depletion and qualitative degeneration of the water available, scarcity of drinking water has become a fairly wide spread phenomenon. As a result, in most developing countries we see an alarming incidence of water-borne disease and India is no exception.
The need to provide safe drinking water for the poor everywhere and also in urban localities to provide for an efficient sewerage system deserve, therefore , the highest priority. It can be safely stated that provision of safe drinking water alone will wipe out about one-third of the total sickness and similarly another third of all sickness will disappear if proper underground sewerage and solid waste disposal systems are provided.
It would be extremely short-sighted to consider these programmes as welfare activities and ignore their effect on productivity. Water-borne disease, whether acute and completely disabling or chronic and debilitating, cause colossal loss of production and productivity. This applies equally to the farm, the factory, the commercial establishment and the Government office.
