Haryana will dig lakes to fight drought




The Haryana government has decided to dig big lakes and will renovate the old ones in the state to provide irrigation facilities to the farmers in adverse circumstances, a state government spokesman said on Monday quoting the minister, Birendra Singh.

 

"The lakes and reservoirs would be constructed to deal with drought like conditions in the state. A target has been set to irrigate about 20,000 acres of land in the state by these lakes. Each lake would provide irrigation facilities to 2-3 acres of land. The government is making all-out efforts to provide irrigation facilities to every inch of land in the state," the finance minister added.

 

"To achieve this objective a network of canals and distributaries is being laid in the state," he added
