Drought can be defeated if villagers come together: Fadnavis 18.5.2018 General News
Drought can be defeated if villagers come together to conserve water, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said while inspecting works done here by the Paani Foundation, an NGO started by actor Aamir Khan. Fadnavis, who was on a tour of Jat taluka in Maharashtra's Sangli district, inspected the water conservation works in Aundhi and Bagalwadi villages in the taluka. "Through the Paani Foundation today, the entire village has come together. I am proud I have been with you," Fadnavis told villagers. Hitting out at previous governments, Fadnavis said that, in the last 50 years, no plan had reached the grassroots level. "About 50 per cent villages in the state face drought.

Today 11,000 villages are drought-free in the state and the figure will go up to 20,000 this year," Fadnavis said.

Rly installs aerators in basin-taps of Tejas Express to conserve water 18.5.2018 General News
Specially-designed aerators have been installed in the basin-taps of Tejas Express train as a step towards water conservation, the Railway Ministry said today. The measure was taken by the Bhusawal Division of Central Railway zone. The aerators through their fine pores break the incoming stream of water into fine sub-streams. So, while the out-flowing water is sufficient for utilisation towards cleanliness, wastage is prevented by reducing excess flow. "Conservation of water...is not only an effective way to avoid enroute watering complaints in coaching trains but is also a small but significant step in conserving the precious resource," the railways said in a statement. "The aerators are to be fitted as a one-time measure and have been fitted in existing taps of Tejas Express without any modification or replacement of available taps," it said. The initiative reduces water consumption of each tap by one-fourth and is a significant step towards water conservation, it added.
