No Relief For Farmers As Water Levels In Dams Still Dismal

Gandhinagar: Despite the recent good spell of rain in Saurashtra and Kutch, the regions are staring at several months of water woes. With the water storage in the dams remaining quite low, farmers will not be getting any water from these sources for irrigation. The issue is all set to become a poll agenda for parties opposing the ruling BJP. Sources said that at the beginning of this week, the average water storage in dams and other schemes in Kutch was recorded at 36.40 per cent while that for Saurashtra was a grim 17.86 per cent.
