Chandigarh: At a time when India is reeling under severe drought conditions, thousands of litres of water was used to damp a helipad for Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah's helicopter landing in Haryana, report claimed on Saturday.

As per Pradesh18 report, six fire trucks sprayed thousands of litres of water in parched Gohana of Haryana to facilitate Shah's helicopter landing.

Many politicians recently kicked up row for wasting gallons of water for their helicopter landing.

A couple of days ago, Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh stoked controversy following reports that around 10,000 litres of water was used to create a temporary helipad for his visit to drought-hit Bhiwandi.

Several regions in the country are severely hit by drought this year with not a water to drink, leave alone irrigation.

Special arrangements are being made to ferry water to these faraway areas.
