At a time when the water level in India's major reservoirs and river basins has fallen, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday pitched for conservation of rain water, saying there is a pressing need to make water conservation a mass movement on the lines of the cleanliness drive.
In the first address in the second edition of monthly radio address 'Mann ki Baat', the prime minister also said 'one size fits all' approach is not required in water conservation.
"In different parts, different methods may be adopted but the aim is same- to conserve every drop of water," he said.
Modi appealed to all Indians, including eminent people from all walks of life to create awareness on water conservation.
