problems of droughtMumbai, April 01, 2013: Cardinal Oswald Gracias has called on the people to address the problems of drought and the death of infants in public hospital in Mumbai.

“Our focus should be on ‘saving the farmer campaign’ due to an ominous threat of drought in our state that could lead to famine and suicide,” said Cardinal Gracias in his Easter message.

He said that steps should be taken on a war footing to adopt measures such as water harvesting and special drives to collect funds for immediate relief.

Maharashtra is in the grip of the worst ever drought since 1972.

“Another area that needs our immediate attention is the death of infants in our public hospitals owing to gross negligence of civic authorities in the city.

Governor K. Sankaranarayanan greeted the community on the occasion of Easter.

“May the pure and selfless life of Jesus Christ inspire us to tread the path of love and truth with determination, and may it bring peace and happiness to one and all,” he said.

The East Indian community in the city has taken up the cause of ‘fighting injustice’ on Easter.
