Better monsoon, but villages still thirsty
Over sixty per cent of the Indian rural population depends on the agricultural sector for their livelihood. Experts says, even a slight fluctuation to the monsoon rains will make a huge difference in the agricultural production. Bihar, Odisha, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh are marked among the states that hold a large number of districts with the scarcity of rainfall. Notably, these states are strong agrarian economies. Anyway, this time, the monsoon has spared Maharashtra and other centre states from their wicked game. So far, Maharashtra has experienced normal rainfall across the state. If we closely examine the overall picture, our country has gained better rainfall this monsoon. Moreover, the indicator now stays at least one per cent above the anticipated mark. However, unless and until we create feasible policies to check the climate change we will be forced to erase our big dreams of economic growth.
