Maharashtra government has declared drought in over 29000 villages of the state, most of them in parched Marathwada and Vidarbha regions. The government through a corrigendum issued from Mumbai clarified that wherever reference is made to a ‘drought-like situation’ in the state manual, it would be read as drought.
The reference is made in accordance with an assurance it gave to the Bombay High Court recently. The villages that have now been declared as affected by drought were already receiving benefits from the government and that the Drought Manual provided only for the word drought-like.
So let’s do:
1. Who is the Governor of Maharashtra ?
2. Name the state, Which has declared drought in over 29000 villages ?
3. Who is the Chief minister of Maharashtra ?
