Even as the UP government turned down the Centre’s offer to send a water-train to the state’s drought-hit Bundelkhand region, Union Minister for Water Resources and Ganga Rejuvenation Uma Bharti on Thursday chided Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for creating “a mockery of the situation”.

In a letter to the CM, Bharti said that MPs from Bundelkhand region of both UP and Madhya Pradesh had cited crises of water before the Niti Aayog, following which the central government decided to send water trains.

However, by denying the Centre’s offer, the Akhilesh government has created a mockery of the situation, she stated.
Bharti also requested Akhilesh to ask all DMs of Bundelkhand region to make proper use of the water tankers, sources added.

Meanwhile, Akhilesh also sent a letter to Bharti, in which he said that water bodies in Bundelkhand still have sufficient water and do not require trains.

Demanding for 10,000 road tankers for distributing water to the affected areas, Akhilesh told the minister that in case there is need for a water train in UP, the demand for the same would be placed before the Centre in a timely manner.
