Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called upon people to start a mass movement for water conservation and taking a vow to save every drop of water amidst water scarcity in several parts of the country.
Addressing the nation for the first time after resuming office for the second term through Mann Ki Baat programme on All India Radio, he said an awareness campaign is required which should not only focus on water-related problems but also propagate ways to save water.
He said, society must be united in this endeavour and people belonging to social and cultural organizations should lead this movement in their own fashion.
Prime Minister Modi also requested the people to share traditional methods that have been in use over the centuries for the conservation of water. He asked the people to pay a visit to Porbandar to see a 200-year-old water tank which is still capable of storing water and has a mechanism to harvest rain water.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged people to share the information concerning people who are making significant contributions towards water conservation. He urged people to use #JanShakti4JalShakti to share their content on the matter.
