Maoists in drought hit Bihar guard water resources

By Super Admin

Gaya, Aug 19 (ANI): Maoists in Bihar, where 26 of the 38 districts have been declared as drought-hit, have been guarding water resources in their villages to prevent from being misused by neighbouring villagers.

The Maoists in Gaya district have entrusted themselves to job so that they have enough water to irrigate their land.

"We are guarding water as there is shortage of water to irrigate the land. We also need water for our animals. Neighbouring villagers will take the water and we will be deprived of it," said a Maoist activist.

Bihar has recorded a 43 per cent rainfall deficit so far this monsoon season.

This has hit the plantation of paddy saplings and the farmers badly.

The districts declared drought-hit include Siwan, Bhojpur, Gaya, Nalanda, Jehanabad, Rohtas and Tehmur. (ANI)
