I am impressed by the statement of KC Tyagi ji in Rajya Sabha but all other speeches on Drought situation were Unfortunate TRAGEDY.
It is most Lunatic to think there is Flood in one region and drought in other – fact is same Region had Severe Floods and later Drought.
Uma Bharti as usual was pathetic advocating Lunatic River Linking – MP, Gujarat & Orissa, Jharkhand, Rajasthan WERE HIT By SAVAGE FLOODS the latest monsoon season are now experiencing drought.
A Train drowned in MP near Indira Sagar Dam India’s biggest as Flash Floods washed away the railway track.
Median rainfall in Loss Angeles in Five Seasons is just 200mm approx – most districts in drought prone regions in India once or twice get over 200mm of rainfall in a single day. Some get over 300mm and week long floods like North Gujarat, Saurashtra & Kutchh and a Train in MP was washed away in flash floods due heavy rain last year are now drought hit regions.
It was TRAGIC even Rajeev Chandrashekhar who was CEO of BPL came without study and facts.
California 5th Drought Year is $2.3 Trillion Economy
Dam Storage Capacity 38 MAF – Live Storage 22 MAF
Entire California in a normal year get 32 MAF of water for $2300b Economy and today has 18.4 MAF of storage in scores of Dams or22 BCM approx has built 38 MAF of Dam Storage plus connected to Colorado River system that has around 12 MAF normal inflows but has 53 MAF of Live Capacity – California is entitled to only a fraction of annual releases.
MP and Gujarat or Maharshtra & Rajasthan are not even $100b to $200b Economies, all four states together get around 250-350 MAF of water almost 8-10 times. Some major rivers are Godavari, Krishna, Narmada, Tapi, Sabarmati, Mahi, and may West Flowing Rivers.
California state get just 32 maf of water in a normal year – but in good monsoon year Narmada River had over 74 BCM or 60 MAF water but most of the water in Narmada River [70% to 80%] is lost to sea but not utilized. P-91 attached.
Every drop of Water in California is accumulated, accounted and is equitably distributed.
