Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has said the shortage of water is the main problem in Maharashtra, but the issue is being addressed by the state and central governments. He said both governments are doing a considerable amount of work to address this problem by increasing irrigation potential and stop farmer suicides in drought-prone areas.

Nitin Gadkari was addressing a joint meeting of the BJP and the Shiv-Sena yesterday who have stitched a pre-poll alliance in Maharashtra for the Lok Sabha elections. He said the BJP-Shiv-Sena alliance under the leadership of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has done wonderful work in Maharashtra.

Mr. Gadkari said the biggest problem of Maharashtra is its water problem and we had consistently fought on the issue of irrigation inside and outside the Vidhan Sabha.He said around 26 half completed irrigation projects in Maharashtra have been taken up for completion under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana.
