Chennai's Water Crisis Trapped In Political War?
Chennai is practically the first Indian city to have gone dry with the Central Water Commission reporting a rainfall deficit of 41 per cent in Tamil Nadu till June 13 this year. Most of Chennai's population today is dependent on water tankers and curtailed municipal supply for daily requirement of drinking water. As water scarcity deepens in Chennai, a major political war has broken out in Chennai. Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) staged protest against the ruling AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu and demanded a solution to Chennai's water crisis.
