Under Jal Shakti Abhiyan    sponsored by the Union  government, various public awareness programmes and water conservation related activities will be undertaken in Dharsinwa block of Raipur and Gurur block of Balod district in the state.

These two blocks have specially been earmarked by the Center to conduct water conservation related activities under the two-and-half- month long programme to be  continued till September 15.

In the same spree, Joint Secretary in government of India, Rabindra Agrawal convened an important meeting at Red Cross auditorium here at Collectorate premises on Thursday to review the ongoing works under the Jal Shakti Abhiyan.

Official sources informed that the Union government had  earmarked 257 places across the country, which are facing the   problem of depleting ground water level.
