Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today made a fresh offer to send 10 lakh litres of water from the national capital to drought-hit Latur in Maharashtra’s parched Marathwada.

“The drought situation in Maharashtra is heart-rending. In a situation like this, it is incumbent upon all countrymen to assist the affected. If the Delhi government can assist you in any other way, then please let us know,” Kejriwal said in a letter to the mayor of Latur.

Kejriwal also shared a copy of another letter, dated April 16, the Latur mayor had written to him thanking him for his offer to send water last month.

Kejriwal also tweeted, “It is collective duty of every Indian to help if a part of our country in distress.”

Last month also the Delhi Chief Minister had made a similar offer.

He had praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his efforts to resolve the water crisis and sought his help in sending water to the affected areas.

In a letter to Modi, Kejriwal had said the people of Delhi are ready to send 10 lakh litres of water per day to Latur for next two months and demanded the Centre make arrangements for transportation.
