Arvind Kejriwal offers massive help to drought affected Latur
New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday offered to send ten lakh litres of water per day for the next two months to the drought-hit Latur in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Kejriwal posted a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding the Central government to make arrangement for the transportation of water and said, "Delhi offers ten lakh litres of water everyday for two months for brothers/sisters in Latur. 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," said Kejriwal.
