Kerala willing to offer 20 lakh liters drinking water, Tamil Nadu rejects it

The Kerala government on Thursday expressed willingness to provide 20 lakh litres drinking water to Tamil Nadu, which is facing acute water scarcity, but the latter has declined it, saying there was “no need for the help at present.”
“Since the major water bodies of Chennai have been facing acute water shortage, the Kerala government decided to extend a helping hand,” a release issued from the Kerala Chief Minister’s office said.
Though Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s office contacted the Tamil Nadu CMO on the offer, the neighbouring State informed that “at present, there is no need for the help”, it said.
Kerala was prepared to transport 20 lakh litres of drinking water from Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai through train, the release added.
Tamil Nadu Municipal Administration Minister S.P. Velumani told reporters in Coimbatore that deficiencies in some groundwater conservation projects were identified at various places, including Chennai and were being attended to.
