Water scarcity may increase during summer: Rawat 28.3.2018 General News
Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has warned people of Uttarakhand about water scarcity increasing during the peak of summer, but said his government was taking several steps to boost the depleting water levels.

'Flood has become an annual affair in Bihar' 18.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Come monsoon and the rivers in Bihar have once again breached the embankments, causing severe damages to life and property. The government machinery is yet again grappling with the relief and rescue operations. Despite the state government spending crores for the disaster control and management where 28 of 38 districts have been declared as "flood prone", the floods affect lakhs of people every year. The government measures, including construction and repair of embankments, have thoroughly failed to serve their purpose. This year, the flood has claimed almost 100 lives and affected over 93 lakh people across 17 districts in the north of the state.

The process that badly affects the bed of the river can only be solved through dredging and treating the catchment, Patna-based hydrologist V K ...
