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

How dam desilting is transforming the most drought-prone areas in Maharashtra.…

#Jalyuktshivar is a pronounced success.
But fewer know about #Gaalmuktdharan scheme.
While the numbers are still being counted, it is likely that the state would have spent less than Rs 25 crore on desilting these dams.

330 crores would have been required to transport this much water to villages via tankers

listen to him, u realise @nitin_gadkari is at another level altogether.... way beyond
@nitin_gadkari The government is ready to give "on a platter" all necessary regulatory clearances to investors ready to run public transport buses on electricity or alternative fuel, Union Minister @nitin_gadkari
@nitin_gadkari Major automobile manufacturers like Tata Motors and Ashok Leylandcould also form an operator company on the pattern of London Transport model, the minister proposed while promising to remove regulatory hurdles to give a push to e-vehicles in India.

मेरी भववाधा हरौ, राधा नागरि सोय।

जा तन की झाँई परे स्याम हरित दुति होय।।

काजर दै नहिं ऐ री सुहागिन, आँगुरि तो री कटैगी गँड़ासा

:))))) #Bihari
कब को टेरत दीन ह्वै, होत न स्याम सहाय।

तुम हूँ लागी जगत गुरु, जगनायक जग बाय।।

वो फ़िराक़ हो या विसाल हो, तेरी याद महकेगी एक दिन
वो ग़ुलाब बन के खिलेगा क्या, जो चिराग़ बन के जला न हो

ग़ुलामी को बरकत समझने लगें
असीरों को ऐसी रिहाई न दे
मान मौसम का कहा, छाई घटा, जाम उठा
आग से आग बुझा, फूल खिला, जाम उठा

पी मेरे यार तुझे अपनी क़सम देता हूँ
भूल जा शिकवा-गिला, हाथ मिला, जाम उठा
