Confusion and politics over drought prevailed in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday as the Samajwadi Party government refused outright the Centre’s offer of a “water-train” for the parched region of Bundelkhand, even as a 10-wagon train destined for Mahoba lay stranded at a rail yard in Jhansi, with officials clueless about what to do next.
The train, with a capacity of more than 5 lakh litres, is, however, empty. “The wagons do not contain any water or oil,” NCR Jhansi Division spokesperson Girish Kanchan told The Hindu .
The disposal of the wagons is
yet to be decided as the Mahoba district administration had neither “refused nor demanded” them, Mr. Kanchan said. “We are awaiting instructions from our headquarters in Allahabad,” he said.
Chitrakoot Divisional Commissioner Venkateshwarlu said the Mahoba district had not made any such demand.
The rejection of the Centre’s aid by the SP government, which claimed that Bundelkhand had sufficient water, triggered a war of words with parties accusing each other of playing politics over water.
‘A drama’
SP Cabinet Minister Rajendra Chaudhary said the Centre’s proposal to provide a water-train was a “drama,” while Union Water Resources Minister and Jhansi MP Uma Bharti, in a letter to U.P. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, described his decision to refuse Centre aid as “ridiculous” and cited the grave water scarcity in Bundelkhand.
Mr. Yadav, who is expected to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 7 to discuss the drought situation, shot off a reply to Ms. Bharti requesting 10,000 tankers for the region. Since Bundelkhand’s reservoirs still had adequate water, the region’s urgent requirement was that of tankers, he said.
