Ahmedabad: With water crisis worsening in Gujarat, especially in Saurashtra region, Congress has announced to launch ‘Jal Yatra’ against Narendra Modi government.

Alleging the government of ignoring the woes of millions of people, Leader of Opposition in the state assembly, Shankarsinh Vaghela said that the state government has failed in meeting the water needs of the North Gujarat region.

Refuting the allegations, Babu Bokhirya, Water Resources and Water Supply Minister said, "The allegations are baseless. We are supplying water to all cities and villages as per the norms and we are ready with alternate plans to cop up with water crises."

Government has also approved Rs 22 lakhs for the pipeline project for the Saurashtra region added Bokhirya. Moreover, the minister himself will tour the Saurashtra region from February 7 to 9.
