Arvind Kejriwal Praises PM Modi For Efforts To Resolve Latur Water Crisis

NEW DELHI:  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making efforts to resolve the water crisis in drought-hit Latur and sought his help to send water to the parched district in Maharashtra's Marathwada region.

Mr Kejriwal in a letter to the Prime Minister said the people of Delhi are ready to send 10 lakh litres of water per day to Latur for the next two months and demanded that the Centre make arrangements for transportation.

"Latur is going through an acute water crisis. The central government has decided to send water to Latur by train. This is an admirable step.

"It will be shameful for the entire country if anyone dies due to water crisis in India in the 21st century. It is the responsibility of the entire country to help the people of Latur," he said.

"Delhi also faces water shortages. But considering the sinister situation in Latur, it is our responsibility to help people there. If you find it appropriate, you may appeal the chief ministers of other states in this regard. I am sure they will also extend a helping hand," Mr Kejriwal said.
