Modi government evolves plan to end Cauvery water crisis soon

The Union Government has decided to evolve a plan to transfer excess waters of the Godavari to Cauvery in a bid to address the water scarcity in South India. Announcing this, Union water resources minister Nitin Gadkari said his ministry was working on two river linking projects that would provide water to water-scarce states as the country's agriculture was dependent on monsoon seasons.

Gadkari said 3,000 TMC of water from the Godavari goes waste into the sea.
