World Water Day: Modi exhorts people to save water

"On 'World Water Day', lets pledge to save every drop of water. When 'Jan Shakti' (people's power) has made up its mind, we can successfully preserve Jal Shakti (water power)," Modi said in a tweet.

"This year, the UN has chosen a valid theme -- wastewater. It will help further awareness on water recycling and why it is essential for our planet," Modi added.

According to a Unicef report released on the occasion, by 2040 nearly 600 million children, one in every four worldwide, will live in areas with extremely limited water resources. The report warned of the threat to children's lives due to the lack of safe water and of how climate change is exacerbating the problem.
