Rohtak: It seems the government officials refuse to learn from past mistakes. Even after huge uproar over wastage of water for Akhilesh Yadav, S Siddaramaiah's visits in their respective states, 1,000 litres of water was used for preparing helipad for Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar's chopper in Yamunanagar.

Last week, the Haryana government faced Supreme Court ire over drought. 

BJP activist Dayanand Nene had claimed that 10,000 litres of water was used for helipad for Union Minister Radha Mohan Singh in Bhiwandi.

News agency ANI had reported that thousands of litres of water was wasted in the preparation of the helipad which Maharashtra Minister Eknath Khadse's helicopter needed to land on.

Several litres of water was wasted in drought-hit Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh to ensure smooth landing of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's chopper on Tuesday.

The local administration had sprinkled two tankers of water on a particular stretch through which Karnataka Chief Minister S Siddaramaiah and his convoy were supposed to pass.

The SC had last week slammed the Centre over the state of acute drought in parts of the country asking the latter as to why they were not taking a call and waiting for the states to declare drought themselves.
