NEW DELHI: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Monday expressed concern over the scarcity of water in various parts of the country and said everyone should join hands to find a solution to the problem before it is too late.
Scarcity of water in Maharashtra, Chennai, Bundelkhand as well as large parts of the country is a matter of national concern, she tweeted.
"Water is a lifeline but right now growing scarcity of water is a big concern for us," the AICC in-charge eastern Uttar Pradesh said.
All of us together should find a solution to the problem before it is too late, she said.
