People are not willing to get their daughters married off in some eight villages of Odisha due to lack of water there, a BJD member said in Lok Sabhaon Wednesday.

Rabindra Jena, who represents Balasore in Odisha, spoke of the peculiar problem saying that the water table has gone so down that one cannot get water even 1,000 feet depth.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, he said some village elders from eight panchayats had met him to flag the issue as parents of girls from other areas do not want to get their daughters married in this area. “I am helpless,” he said.
