"The Kazing stream water source, located in a vast forest range on Maram-Peren Road, 18 Km from NH-2 is an abode of flora and fauna that provides fresh air and fresh water not only to the area but to the region", he said.
While assuring the gathering that pipes would be connected as soon as possible, the Minister  urged the people to extend their support and take up the programme as a community project.
He also mentioned that the water project of Maram Khullen which is situated on a hilltop is under process for implementation.
