village of Latur district breaks down while narrating his tale of woe vis a vis lack of rain that wrecked his sugarcane crop (Source: Express photo by Pradip Das) Related News Rains fall from the sky but drought is “made” on the ground at least in Maharashtra The prevailing water crisis in the state is not about the unavailability of water resources It’s all about criminal mismanagement of available resources For the record: Yes rains were deficient last year In regions like Marathwada which is facing an acute water scarcity the shortfall was as much as 40 per cent Yes it is also true that it was the second consecutive year that rains were scanty in some regions including Marathwada But that cannot be the sole reason for the situation the state finds itself in For if one considers the average rainfall across the state the blame-it-on-nature argument would get turned upside down Last year Maharashtra’s average rainfall was around 1300 mm which was more than the national average of 1100 mm Some areas like the Konkan region received more than 3000 mm of rainfall Marathwada received 882 mm while another drought-prone region Vidarbha was blessed with 1034 mm of rain Compare this with one of India’s most arid regions the desert state of Rajasthan where average annual rainfall is never more than 400 mm So why is Rajasthan not in as dire a state as Maharashtra The answer to this question will make clear the state’s gross and criminal negligence in water management If there is one point in common with all governments that have ruled the state since its inception in 1960 it is their complete apathy towards water issues No government of the state — including that of the BJP-Shiv Sena between 1995-99 — has attached importance to issues such as water conservation drip irrigation or rejuvenating ground water Why Because government after government in the state has been run by those engaged in the gross misuse of water In Maharashtra they are called sugar barons and they are large in number This has resulted in the state witnessing a seemingly unstoppable increase in the number of sugar cooperatives As of today Maharashtra is home to over 205 sugar cooperatives Add to this around 80 sugar mills that are privately owned Though strictly speaking these mills are private in many cases their promoters chair cooperative mills as well In fact it is a popular pastime of politicians in Maharashtra to make state-funded sugar cooperatives sick and then convert them into private ones Water misuse is just collateral damage Sugarcane is a water-guzzler Maharashtra is the second-largest producer of sugar after Uttar Pradesh But unlike the northern state which has a huge river network including that of the Ganges Maharashtra’s sugarcane cultivation is in zones where water is extremely scarce Government records tell us that just about 4 per cent of farmed land in the state is under sugarcane cultivation But what they don’t tell us is the amount of water this tiny percentage of land guzzles The 4 per cent of land under sugarcane cultivation consumes as much as 715 per cent of irrigated water including that from wells This is not a revelation The state always knew this But it never thought of putting a stop to the mushrooming of sugar mills because they are either owned or controlled by the state’s politicians Any politician worth his name in Maharashtra has to have at least one sugar mill to support his or her political empire The rule applies to all parties across all regions including the most drought-prone Marathwada In the last three years the region has added 20 sugar factories taking the total to 70 — even as villages are supplied with drinking water by trains and tankers No wonder then that the groundwater table in Marathwada has hit rock bottom Experts warn that if corrective steps are not taken quickly in the next two decades the Marathwada region will become Maharashtra’s first desert Some of the state’s districts like Pune for example have as many as 62 sugar mills So other regions are not far behind That’s not all The water situation is alarming in Maharashtra even though the state has the largest number of large dams in the country Maharashtra has built as many as 1845 large dams A dam with a height of more than 15 metres or a storage capacity of more than 60 million cubic metres is considered large The number of dams in the state is substantial by any standard The whole game plays out like this: Politicians propose irrigation facilities in the areas where they have business interests Be it sugar cooperatives or dairy In rural Maharashtra a politician’s might is measured by his or her ability to get a sugar cooperative along with facilities for the irrigation of sugarcane crop This has in many places rendered agricultural land useless But the real shocker is this: In an era where the entire world is anxious and worried about climatic changes Maharashtra is totally oblivious to the reality It is yet to bring in concepts like water governance Though for a while it mulled making drip irrigation mandatory for sugarcane cultivation it is yet to enforce it Till then it continues to use a rudimentary technique for supplying water — flood irrigation — where an entire farm is flooded with water One doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to be able to see that this results in extreme wastage of water Currently the state government allots 70-75 per cent of water in reservoirs for agricultural use 10-15 per cent for industry and 10 per cent for domestic use No coincidence that water wastage follows the same pattern with maximum waste in the agricultural sector This explains why the current drought in the state is more a manmade catastrophe than a natural one Droughts don’t hit us like tsunamis They give enough warnings Maharashtra is paying the price for ignoring those [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsUS President
