Meanwhile, speaking to reporters about water crisis, the CM said, "Steps were taken to tackle this issue even before the elections were announced and the officials concerned have been briefed about the measures needed to be taken. The District Collectors have been instructed to ensure drinking water supply regularly wherever it is needed and the same is being followed now. The necessary funds to carry out these works have also been sanctioned already."
