Bundelkhand is known as a ‘badly affected’ drought hit area which needs substantial amount of water in the upcoming sweltering months. Meanwhile, CM Yogi Adityanath has asked his officials for adequate arrangements of water for the people as well as to cattle during summer.
Several irrigation and drinking water schemes including Arjun Sahayak canal project, drinking water schemes for 15 villages in Babina block of Jhansi district, Bhaurath Dam project, Jamrar dam project, Kachanaunda dam project and project of connecting rivers of Ken and Betawa are being implemented in Bundelkhand region for last several years and huge amount has already been expended.
CM Adityanath has asked his officials to complete the on-going projects in the given time before his visit later this month. He said that water will be available in 29 reservoirs of the region and should be utilized properly. No one should face any hardship.
Last year in the month of May, Bundelkhand went out of water completely. The then UP government sent 70,000litres of water via train which was seen empty as it reached Jhansi. Similar incident took place in Latur as well. Later, the Centre distributed 10,000 tankers of water in the drought hit regions of Uttar Pradesh.
