Desalinated water will soon be available at 5 paise per liter: Nitin Gadkari

Nitin Gadkari, Union Water Resources Minister, has stated at an address during the inaugural session of Nadi Mahotsava at Bandhraban, Madhya Pradesh that potable water from seawater will soon be available at just 5 paise per liter. Trials have been started in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, for the conversion of seawater into potable water.

The Union Minister also remarked that it was tragic that states in India quarrel over water and yet, water from three rivers in India flows into Pakistan unused and yet hardly anyone complains about it. He further stated that all that water is going to Pakistan but no newspaper writes about and neither does any MLA demand that it be stopped.

Nitin Gadkari mentioned the use of treated sewage water in thermal power stations in Nagpur while highlighting the need to focus on the conservation of water. He also said that the government plans to earn more revenue by selling treated sewage water to industries, railway stations and power plants.

Nitin Gadkari strongly emphasized on the gravity of the water problem in India. He said, “Water is the biggest problem in India. Only if we manage to save water, forest and animals we would be able to go ahead. It is directly linked to our country and the society.” He added that the pioneering event, Nadi Mahotsav, will not only revive rivers but also improve the livelihood of the people living on their banks.
