Drought Relief Work by RSS Jankalyan Samiti on massive scale

RSS Jankalyan Samiti has begun its Drought Relief work on massive scale. Maharashtra is facing worst ever drought after 1972 and the acute shortage of water has become detrimental to the life of common people and to the cattle on which livelihood depends. To overcome this devastating condition, RSS Jankalyan Samiti has initiated many Drought Relief Work as follows :
Short Term Measures
1] Cattle Feed Depot :
Farmers treat their cattle as their family members, but due to drought, farmers are forced to sale their cattle in the market. Hence providing fodder to these cattle is immense important so that farmers can maintain their cattle for at least next 2–3 months with the help of these fodder depots.
2] Water Storage Tank Distribution :
Water is supplied by tanker by the Government. But there is hardly any arrangement to distribute this water, especially among the small villages often called as Vasti or Pada. Hence it is necessary to arrange water storage tanks on these Padas or Vastis so that water can be distributed evenly among the villagers.
Long Term Measures
Rainfall of 500 mm – 600 mm is sufficient for any region if every drop of the water is conserved. To do so we need to implement water conservation methods. Things to do,
• Rejuvenate the age old water sources available in almost all villages. These sources of water storage are in pretty bad-shape and need to be rejuvenated by; repairing, cleaning, dredging, desilting them.
• Water resources like rivers, Nallas, lakes, etc. which have become defunct due to lack of maintenance, have to be rejuvenated. The major work here is to desilt these sources so that their holding capacity is increased and moreover they aid in water percolation .
• Existing bunds and bandharas to be repaired, specially to stop leakage.
