Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, “In the last three years, Jalyukta Shivar work was taken in phases across 16,621 villages. Of these 11,247 villages have become water reliant. The remaining will become water reliant by December 2018.”
Mokhada district in Maharashtra is facing acute shortage of water and government tankers supply water to the villagers only one time a day. This water scarcity will significantly increase with time, if proper measures are not taken immediately.
