    Water received by residents of Bhokardan city as reported by Mirror Now on 05 Jun. The city's water needs are met by the Jui reservoir. However, for the first time since 1962, the reservoir has gone completely dry. Apart from the city, nearly 40 - 50 neighbouring villages are affected as well. Ironically, tankers source water from Padmavati dam which is located in the Vidarbha region which is dealing with its own water crisis as well.
