Indian skipper MS Dhoni once again attracted enormous attention when the swimming pool at his residence consumes 15,000 litres of water during water crises. The news came up during a phase when the Bombay Court ordered the Board of Control for Cricket in India to shift the venues away from Maharashtra as the state is witnessing some serious drought. Jharkhand Revenue Minister Amar Kumar Bauri grumbled about MS Dhoni s swimming pool as the state too is undergoing drought during this scorching heat. It is also believed that the level of suffering in the areas of Harmu in Jharkhand is equal to that in Maharashtra.

As per the reports, 15,000 litres of water is being used on a consistent basis to fill in the pools every day. It is also believed that the pool remains filled with fresh water despite Dhoni paying rare visits to his place.

People has also questioned the fact that why there hasn t been any arrangements made for the 5,000 people based in Yamunanagar when 15,000 litres of water is being used in the swimming pool.

Yamunanagar has faced a tough time as the borewell is not functional and there is no such facility provided where water can be supplied to the region through tankers. When most of the options turned out to be futile, people requested minister Amar Kumar to set up pipelines in the colonies. In the interim, an adviser of Dhoni in Ranchi has disproved the claim and said the pool is not always flooded with water but it is only when Dhoni is around.
