IMPACT​ ​GENERATED

PHS’​ ​efforts​ ​have​ ​shed​ ​light​ ​on​ ​important​ ​issues​ ​related​ ​to​ ​equitable​ ​access​ ​to​ ​water​ ​in​ ​urban​ ​areas.

free​ ​movement​ ​within​ ​the​ ​territory​ ​of​ ​India​ ​as​ ​a​ ​fundamental​ ​right.​ ​Therefore,​ ​by​ ​countering​ ​the
politicised​ ​sons​ ​of​ ​soil​ ​argument,​ ​PHS​ ​is​ ​also​ ​strengthening​ ​democratic​ ​processes​ ​in​ ​the​ ​country.
