This is due to poor water management by successive governments. Encroaching lakes and water channels, poor maintenance of water canal by not dredging regularly.Loss of trees due to greed by real estate promoters.

They are not running out of water because of drought, they are running out of water because too many people had too many babies.

There are many more countries in the World that are becoming increasingly water stressed owing to drought, mismanagement and melting glaciers which reduce river flows. This problem is going to get a lot worse and represents an existential threat to millions of people. Strange how the main stream media virtually ignores stories like this

If there wasn't so much corruption in the Indian government/civil service there would be more than enough cash to sort out all India's problems!!

If a country pays for spacecraft and nuclear weapons when most of it's population struggles along in 3rd world poverty, this is the outcome. How many Indian politicians will say sorry? Thought so....
