It is May, height of Summer in the scorched district of Osmanabad in the dry Marathwada region of Maharashtra....

and till date NO TANKER is needed to supply water
Nearby district of Latur (Remember the infamous Water train?)... This year just ONE TANKER is supplying water to 2 villages
adjoining district of Beed, another perennially water scarce area.... Just SIX tankers supplying water
These were districts which had 100's of tankers supplying water under UPA's 15 years....
The Flagship water conservation and restoration program of @Dev_Fadnavis 's @BJP4India Govt #Jalyuktshivar is responsible for this....

cost: peanuts
The opposition and the media can present this as putting thousands of people out of work
Nearly 12000 of the 25000 water scarce villages have now turned water sufficent.

another 6000 this year and balance by 2019.
That, Frankly, is the power of a Vision and the will to implement it....

#Jalyuktshivar has become a people's movement....

and 100% credit goes to @Dev_Fadnavis
Same type of programs are now being implemented in Rajasthan, MP and UP (which I know of), and possibly other states also
Next time, when u get an opportunity to exercise your right (&duty) to vote, do remember this simple fact.... Govt's that work, need to be elected, above everything else
It is possible, that people in cities may not be able to really visualise what water scarcity means......

Try to stay one day without it
will be remiss if I don't mention Aamir Khan in this. His Paani foundation's, Water-cup movement has been a good catalyst in this program
