Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis: WaterAid's global advocacy director 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Supplying clean water and toilets for all could take hundreds of years in countries like Eritrea and Namibia unless governments step up funding to tackle the problem and its harmful effects on health, an international development agency warned on Monday. WaterAid - which says nearly 850 million people lack clean water - predicted the world will miss a global goal to provide drinking water and adequate sanitation for everyone by 2030. Meeting it will cost $28 billion per year, the non-profit said. "Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis," said Savio Carvalho, WaterAid's global advocacy director. "We're really calling for governments to pull up their socks," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from the United Nations in New York. From July 9-18, governments are reviewing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, which were agreed at the United Nations in 2015, with a focus on six of the 17. Last week, UN officials said barriers to achieving the 2030 water and sanitation targets range from ...

PM Narendra Modi: Congress ruined farmers, its tears for them are fake 16.7.2018 DNA: Money
Those who are shedding crocodile tears for farmers today should answer why they left irrigation projects incomplete across India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday, in his continued attack on Congress. His government aims to double farmers' income by 2022 and end the divide between the rich and the poor, he said on the second and final day of his eastern Uttar Pradesh tour. "We visualises a New India that takes care of the sick, the poor, the children, the youth and the farmers," he said in Mirzapur. He dedicated a Rs 3400-crore irrigation project and said the Opposition delayed it for 40 years, leading to a 100-time cost escalation. Over 2 lakh farmers of UP, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar will benefit from the project, he said. "Those who are doing politics in the name of farmers had no time to raise the minimum support price (MSP) of their produces. They sat on files. We raised the MSP by 1.5 times," he said. He also cited an international report and said five crore people had come out of poverty ...

PM Modi accuses opposition of delaying projects in UP, Mayawati hits back 15.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
Accusing the Congress and other parties of shedding "crocodile tears" for farmers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked why development and irrigation projects across the country were neglected during their rule. Addressing a public meeting here after inaugurating the Bansagar canal project and laying the foundation stone of the Mirzapur medical college, he said those doing politics in the name of farmers, did not have the time to think about an effective hike in minimum support prices (MSPs).  The prime minister asserted the day is not far when farmers' income would double due to his government's efforts.  Those shedding "crocodile tears" for farmers today should be asked why they did not complete irrigation projects across the nation during their tenure, Modi said. "This is not the matter of Bansagar alone. Such 'atke, latke and bhatke' (stuck up, pending and derailed) projects pertaining to farmers' welfare can be found in different states. They never had any concern. Why were such projects left ...
