Parts of western India have only received a quarter of normal rainfall this monsoon.
Terming the drought in the state as “terrible”, Maharashtra water supplies minister Laxmanrao Dhoble today said the rainfall recorded till July-end was a meagre 24 per cent.
“The state is facing a terrible, difficult drought. It is a cause of concern and the government will seek appropriate funds from the Centre to tackle the situation,” Dhoble told reporters.
“In Konkan, the average recorded rainfall is 62 per cent.
In Amravati and Nagpur region it is 8 to 29 per cent, in Marathwada it is 8 per cent and in Western Maharashtra it is only 27 per cent,” he said.
Water stocks in reservoirs would suffice for drinking, he said. “The water stocks are enough only for drinking. However, at some places, even that would not be sufficient and it will be a problem.”

India has 1,2 billion souls to feed. A failed monsoon, can led to millions of people starving to death.
Like elsewhere in the World, the under privileged people are treated with contempt. Basic food have been made objects of speculation by capitalists who have heart of stones. Also in India.
When Jesus returns, such persons will face a terrible judgment. James the gospel writer, have a clear cut message for those who have “made money”, making life miserable for others.
Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.
Are you one of these criminals, or are supporting their crimes?
You better repent, and beg Jesus for mercy. Or you will perish.
For all Hindus, Muslims and Christians in India: Please read what Jesus says about the days ahead:
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
Pray that you will be able to face all these challenges, and stand in front of Jesus on the day of His return.
