Yogi Adityanath said that it is necessary to maintain the availability and quality of groundwater. He stressed on the conservation measures so that our future generations are not deprived of it.

And dedicated efforts were made. It has played an important role in the efforts of the government towards water conservation.

Yogi Adityanath praised two districts, Chitrakoot and Varanasi, for choosing innovative methods of water conservation. He said, only 10 districts were selected by the centre under Atal Bhujal Yojana, however, the state government decided to extend the water conservation scheme to the remaining 65 districts.
