Amid the water scarcity in neighbouring Tamil Nadu, Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi on Tuesday (June 18) said the Union Territory’s efforts in the area were worthy of replication.
In a message to the media, she recalled that efforts were put in place by a collaborative effort to prevent water crisis in the recent past. The former IPS officer said there could be more efforts which involved no cost to the government Exchequer this monsoon itself. There is a model worth of replication to keep water crisis at bay, she added.
Bedi was instrumental in getting a number of educational institutions and voluntary organisations to take up desilting of water bodies in the union territory.
