Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the country has made significant strides in water security, and the Water vision towards 2047 will be a huge contribution to Amrit Kaal.
"India has made major strides in water security. Our Water vision towards 2047 will be a big contribution to Amrit Kaal. The nation is working together to build 75 Amrit Sarovars in every district. Till now 25,000 Amrit Sarovars have already been constructed," said PM Modi.
He asserted that the states' efforts for water conservation will go a long way in achieving the collective goals of the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi made this statement while addressing the All India Annual State Ministers' Conference on Water.
"In our constitutional system, the subject of water comes under the control of the states. States' efforts for water conservation will go a long way in achieving the collective goals of the country," said PM Modi.
Highlighting the importance of technology, he said, "Technologies like geo-mapping and geo-sensing are playing an important role in the work of water conservation. Various startups are also cooperating in this work."
"Only the government's efforts are not sufficient towards water conservation. A new chapter of Jan Bhagidari (People's Participation) needs to begin with multiple stakeholders from all sections of society," said PM Modi.
Citing the 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan', PM Modi said that the success of the campaign was ensured with public consciousness and awareness and the same thinking has to be awakened in the public for water conservation as well.
