Tamil Nadu has declined Kerala's offer to supply it with 20 lakh litres of water.

According to a statement from Kerala Chief Minister's office, as per the direction of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, officials contacted the Tamil Nadu chief minister's office and conveyed the offer to supply water. However, the TN CM's office replied that at present, water was not required.

Kerala offered the water in view of reports of acute water scarcity in Chennai, which also hit the agriculture sector. The plan was to supply water through train, said the statement from Kerala CM's office.
