Talking to newsmen here today Mandaviya, who was here to to participate in an event in Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry on ‘budget for new India- a different perspective,’ said, ‘the government will continue to supply water to farmers till the availability of water was there. But we must understand that the availability of water depends on many natural factors.’
