    Commandos of the National Security Guards (NSG), the country’s most elite combat force, stationed at Mumbai have been ‘injured’ fighting a different kind of enemy — mosquitoes and contaminated drinking water.:mrgreen:

    On July 13, when blasts ripped through the city, more than 25 commandos were on sickbeds and out of action. The reason: the BMC is still to provide the Mumbai unit with a potable water connection. Repeated attempts to get a connection have yielded nothing, a commando said.

    After waiting for months, the NSG hub in Marol dug a borewell inside the compound. And commandos have been forced to drink unhygienic water for the past several months. “The water is contaminated and unsuitable for drinking,†he said. “But we have to drink it because the civic body has not provided us with water supply.â€

    An officer who did not want to be named said more than 25 of the 250 commandos stationed in the unit are suffering from various diseases, mainly because of drinking contaminated water. “Every day for the past six months, 20-25 commandos on an average are down with malaria, typhoid or viral fever,†he said. “The water connection is stuck in red tape.â€

    When DNA got in touch with the civic body, officials first feigned ignorance and then assured of rapid action. “I did not know that the NSG unit has no water connection,†Ranjeet Dhakne, assistant municipal commissioner (L-ward), said. “I will see to it that the matter is sorted out at the earliest.â€

    BMC can't even give clean drinking water to Mumbai's NSG commandoes - Mumbai - DNA

    No wonder why India have to spend 100BillionUSD on defense.

    Somnath as usuall wasting time on stupid things.

    Commandos are supposed to be fittest man in entire force but Indian Commandos are drinking dirty water and fighting with Mosquitoes.

    Indian defense budget is 40 Billion USD and my question whats the salary of common NSG commando can't they purchase mineral water or water purifier? why they are risking their lives to save few thousand rupees?

    You can imagine their stupidity and mental level they keep drinking contaminated water and spending days in Hospitals on the other hand if these 25 Commandos contribute 300 each they can buy a water purifier or mineral water tanks its good for their own health.

    while the intention of thread starter can be dobted, for me it just highlights the kind of facilities that are being provided to our jawans.

    There is no shortage of money in india as it is evident from billions of dollars we r spending on various defence deals. i am sure at least some million dollars can be spent in upgrading the living conditions of our Jawans.

    i am also pi**ed off at the red tapism at various govt agencies. our babus have got used to taking bribes for performing their basic duties. were the BMC guys waiting for NSG jawans to pay bribes. shameless bas****.

    It is very pathetic on the part of BMC that it could not provide safe drinking water to our commandos. And sorry to hear that 25 commandos were on sickbed. Commandos are to be fit and fine all the time and not on sickbed. Its only evident how corrupt and bother-less our system has become. Corruption is a serious threat to our system. I wish a strict Jan Lok Pak comes and corruption could be eradicated from each level of Machinery, system and Govt. May Annaji and his team get success.
