"The drought situation in Maharashtra is heart-rending. In a situation like this, it is incumbent upon all countrymen to assist the affected. If the Delhi government can assist you in any other way, then please let us know," Kejriwal said in a letter to the mayor of Latur.

Kejriwal also shared a copy of another letter, dated 16 April, the Latur mayor had written to him thanking him for his offer to send water last month.

Kejriwal also tweeted, "It is collective duty of every Indian to help if a part of our country in distress."

Last month also the Delhi Chief Minister had made a similar offer.

In a letter to Modi, Kejriwal had said the people of Delhi are ready to send 10 lakh litres of water per day to Latur for next two months and demanded the Centre make arrangements for transportation.
