Modi's farm irrigation scheme: Data tells a sad story

While the ministry of water-resources says 33-irrigation projects among the 99-implemented on a priority basis. Data gathered by FE show that in as many as 74-projects, there has been absolutely no progress in the construction of field channels and drains. Without these last-mile facilities, the irrigation potential created cant be tapped by farmers, so the funds spent on the projects virtually go to waste.
