STRUGGLE FOR REDUCTION OF IRRIGATION BACK LOG

A number of social and economic issues can be solved by adopting politics of development. I feel it is the politics of development and competition for development which would ultimately give the necessary impetus to the development process as whole Do we realize how important is the facility of irrigation for the farmers and how much close to heart is the issue of irrigation to every farmer, In a way the whole future depends upon the provision of irrigation facilities. But the sad part of it is instead of thinking how best we can increase our crop efficiency through proper irrigation, the whole issue of irrigation is being politicized. The question remains now whether irrigation is a subject of development or a subject to play politics with. The irrigation backlog still remains. This struggle would definitely take a long time and honest efforts on the part of the government and the bureaucracy.
