Pune:

In an attempt to draw attention to the irregular water supply in Maharashtra's Kolhapur, a couple from the city chose to take out their marriage procession on a water tanker and resolved to not embark on their honeymoon till the issue was sorted.

The groom Vishal Kolekar, 32, got married on Thursday and the couple took out a marriage procession on a water tanker to highlight the water issues in their locality.

"We have a social group called Prince Club here and through our platform, we have been appraising the civil administration about the irregular water supply in some of the areas of Mangalwar Peth. But despite our pleas, the issue has not been addressed," said Mr Kolekar, who is employed in a private firm in the western Maharashtra city.

Since the water supply in the area is erratic, residents have to rely on water tankers to meet their requirements, he said.

Mr Kolekar and his wife Aparna used a water tanker for the marriage procession instead of a car, and the message on the banner hung on the vehicle said the couple will not go on their honeymoon till the water supply issue is resolved.
