Manjhi, a former Bihar chief minister, was reacting to Kumar's statement yesterday that ST/ST quotas could be rasied after the 2021 census and that state governments did not have the power to increase reservations. Manjhi, who had quit THE JD(U) and floated his party three years ago after being forced to step down and make way for Kumar's return, also claimed that if the Bihar chief minister failed to do the needful while having an alliance with the party in power at the Centre (BJP), it would be "a reflection on his lack of commitment to the Dalits' cause". "Nitish Kumar is simply trying to save his face by making populist but ambivalent gestures. If he is serious about the SCs and the STs getting a greater share, he should follow the example of Tamil Nadu where reservations stand at 69 per cent," Manjhi told ...

India stares at water crisis, urgent steps needed: experts 19.4.2018 General News
As the proverbial Indian summer sets in and taps dry up across large swathes of the country, India faces an acute shortage of safe and sustainable water, specifically groundwater, a crisis that will exacerbate with factors like indiscriminate use and climate change, warn experts. The issue of water sustainability for the years to come centres around critical water sources such as reservoirs and groundwater. Last week, the World Resources Institute (WRI), basing its findings on a new early warning satellite system, warned that shrinking reservoirs in India could result in water taps going completely dry in the country. Experts also point to research establishing the criticality of groundwater for India's agriculture dependent people. "Almost 70-80 per cent of the population of South Asia (including India) is dependent on groundwater for drinking and agricultural irrigation," said leading IIT Kharagpur hydrogeologist Abhijit Mukherjee. The northern and eastern parts lose groundwater at
