New Delhi, Jun 28: Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Sunday, Jun 28 said there is no drought-like situation in the country although the monsoon is delayed by 12 days.

"There is no drought-like situation in the country due to delay in monsoons and the loss would be more than made up for in the rains during July and August," Pawar said.

He also denied rumours of a price rise, adding that food procurement was better this year compared to last year. "The government had enough reserve food stocks to tackle a drought-like situation should it exist", Pawar added.
