Former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said he will launch a street agitation if the mega water projects launched by his government were discontinued. Party leaders on Monday held a day-long protest and fast outside the collector’s office at Aurangabad.
Former BJP minister Pankaja Munde held a symbolic fast to highlight water woes in drought-hit Marathwada. The fast was called off at 6 pm. “We are committed to make Marathwada drought-free,” Fadnavis said. “…Projects like Jalyukt Shivar have brought a water revolution…The water grid and integrated river-linking water projects started by our government will help tackle water crisis.”
