 The NDA government has asked states to emulate the Gujarat water management model to address the problem of water scarcity. 

The Centre has forwarded a compact disc received from Gujarat government’s Water and Sanitation Management Organisation on the subject “The state-wide water supply grid” to the states to study how the BJP-ruled state managed the problem of water scarcity.

“The CD gives an experience of the Gujarat government in development of a statewide grid for ensuring water supply to the state,” said an official in the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.
