Chennai : With water crisis increasing in Chennai day by day, the doctors are now hoping the rain gods open their rain doors on earth for a good downpour as the doctors are forced to buy water from water trucks to conduct surgeries in the hospital.
Chairman of Sudar Hospitals in Chennai, T.N. Ravishankar has expressed the grim situation in the hospitals as the piped water at the hospitals including his has already dried up and even the more expensive trucks on which they are dependent might be unavailable soon in Tamil Nadu.
Treating patients is becoming difficult and the doctors are now relying on the almighty for rains.
Because of the water crisis the patients are also forced to shell out more money as the expenses due to water scarcity is escalating in the hospitals.
Maximum hospitals in Chennai are now completely dependent on the more than 5,000 privately owned tankers that ferry water around the city every day.
If the water crisis continues in Chennai then the privately owned water tankers would fail to supply water even to the one who would pay highest amount of money.
