Industrialisation, agriculture pushed need for water, Bansal

Rising population, growing industrialisation and expanding agriculture have pushed up the demand for water, Union minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Water Resources Pawan Kumar Bansal today said.

He emphasised on the need to raise awareness for minimising wastage of water.

"It has become imperative that we must judiciously use every single drop of water," Bansal, who is also Congress MP from Chandigarh said.

He was speaking on the occasion of International Youth Peace Festival organised by an NGO, Yuvsatta and SD College, Chandigarh with support from the Union Ministry of Culture.

Stressing on the need for judicious use of water, he said the demand for water was ever increasing and is bound to increase due to population growth and mobility.

"Judicious use of water is more than ever essential for water management," Bansal said, adding there was a need to raise awareness for minimising wastage of water.

Appreciating the NGO's initiative, Bansal said the unique Peace fest organised by Yuvsatta annually in the city, had grown over the past seven years, with youth from over 35 countries participating in the fest this year.

Pramod Sharma, coordinator, Yuvsatta, said the fest was an endeavour of uniting young people beyond barriers of race, religion and nationality.
