Mumbai: A water conservation scheme in Osmanabad district of Marathwada region has been named after late BJP leader Gopinath Munde, as a tribute to the former Union minister`s work for farmers.
Water conservation works of 35 km have been undertaken as part of the scheme in 10 villages, which was launched by the Natural Sugar and Allied Industries, a sugar factory started by former Munde associate B B Thombre.

The scheme was named after Munde following the BJP leader`s demise in Delhi after a road accident on June 3.
Former BJP MLC Pasha Patel, who launched a nullah (drain) deepening project as part of the scheme earlier this week, said conservation works will help farmers tackle water shortage in the state.
