Modi commends railways for sending water to Latur

New Delhi, April 24 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday appreciated the efforts of the Indian Railways as well as common people in battling the ongoing draught in the country.

In the 19th edition of his radio address ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Modi congratulated the railways for sending water to Latur in Maharashtra.

“The railways was swift in sending water to Latur. It is very commendable. But there are many water conservation initiatives taken by common people across the country which never receive the due recognition,” he said.

Modi gave the example of Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra where the farmers have stopped producing crops which require more water.

“The farmers have decided not to produce sugarcane. They have switched to fruits and vegetables which require less water,” he added.
