Speaking at the pre-Budget meeting of Finance Ministers from all States, chaired by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Delhi on Friday, Mr. Panneerselvam sought the Centre’s assistance to augment irrigation structures in drought-prone areas and to address agrarian distress and drinking water crisis, similar to the allocation made to Maharashtra.
“The country is facing severe drought and its impact is significantly more severe in Tamil Nadu.
