Give us water, state villagers tell Rahul
Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi visited drought-hit villages in Satara district yesterday but did not announce any relief measure.
“We want water. Everything else can come later!” a farmer told Gandhi. Satara is where the biggest water supply project of Maharashtra, the Koyna Dam, is located. But, barely a few kilometres away, there is acute scarcity of water virtually eight months in a year.
