Following the UN declaration of the World Water Day, the world over has been observing the day to remind people about conserving water — one of the most important elements that sustains life on the planet.
Water is the most critical element for the development of a region. On #Worldwaterday , let us all pledge to conserve water. As a govt, we stand committed to expedite irrigation n river linking projects. I aspire for a day when no Indian village has to deal with water scarcity.

I was in Cape Town just a few months ago and could clearly see that the water we take for granted isn’t infinitely available. Let’s all respect the importance of water and understand how we can conserve it and make a difference #WorldWaterDay— Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) March 22, 2018
