As the first train with five lakh litres of water reached drought-hit Latur, this initiative by Narendra Modi drew praises from the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday and he himself sought Prime Minister’s help to send water to Marathwada region in Maharashtra.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Kejriwal wrote that people of Delhi are ready to send 10 lakh litres of water per day to Latur, for the next two months. He wants Narendra Modi to arrange for the transportation.

The letter read, “If you find it appropriate, you may appeal the chief ministers of other states in this regard. I am sure they will also extend a helping hand.”

“Latur is going through an acute water crisis. The central government has decided to send water to Latur by train. This is an admirable step. It will be shameful for the entire country if anyone dies due to water crisis in India in the 21st century. It is the responsibility of the entire country to help the people of Latur,” he said in the letter.

Kejriwal further wrote in his letter that though Delhi is also seething under water crises, but since the condition in Latur is worse, every Indian should make efforts to help the place, supplying water.


The Logical Indian appreciates this noble initiative by our Hon’ble Prime Minister and Arvind Kejriwal to provide water. It is appreciative more in the current scenario because at this time parties in opposition only come together for opportunistic purposes and not for the benefit of the people. We are also thankful to the people of Delhi for showing such solidarity. We urge other states of our country, also to come forward and reach out to drought-hit Maharashtra by providing water.
