New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) Chief Ministers of six north Indian states signed an agreement for Renukaji Multipurpose Dam here on Friday, which aims to fulfil the water needs of these states, said an official statement.

The agreement was signed by Arvind Kejriwal, Ashok Gehlot, Yogi Adityanath, Manohar Lal Khattar, Jai Ram Thakur and Trivendra Singh Rawat -- the Chief Ministers of Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, respectively.

Speaking on the occasion, Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, said: "There is enough water available in the country but the real issue is effective water management."

"Renukaji Dam project has been conceived as a storage project on Giri river (tributary of river Yamuna) in Sirmour district of Himachal Pradesh. The project envisages construction of 148-metre high rock-filled dam for supply of 23 cumec water to Delhi and other basin states," read the government statement.

"After construction of the dam, the flow of river Giri will increase by about 110 per cent which will meet the drinking water needs of Delhi and other basin states up to some extent in the lean period," it added.
