“The chief minister will formally meet the prime minister here tomorrow (Saturday), where issues relating to governance and drought and water scarcity will figure,” an informed source said here.

Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party on Friday raised in the Rajya Sabha the issue of an “empty water train” reaching Bundelkhand. SP members later staged a walkout from the upper house.

In Lucknow, the state government on Thursday accused the Centre of “playing politics” over drought and said nobody had requisitioned water from the union government as there was not much need.
