Concerned about the water crisis in rural areas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written a personal letter to 'Gram Pradhans' or village chiefs requesting them to conserve large amounts of rainwater during the forthcoming monsoon.
The letters, signed by the prime minister, have been hand-delivered to the village chiefs through the respective District Magistrates and Collectors in the districts.
PM Modi says in his letter, "Dear Sarpanchji, Namaskar (Namaste). I hope that you and all my brothers and sisters of the panchayat would be in the best of health. The rainy season is about to begin. We are grateful to God that we are blessed with so much rainwater. We should make all efforts and arrangement to conserve this blessing (water)."
