Maa kab aayi thi? ( When did my mother come?)” This was Rahul Gandhi’s first question to the villagers of Man in Satara district of Maharashtra when he visited the drought- affected area on April 28. They knew the answer, even if he didn’t. Rahul’s father Rajiv and mother Sonia had toured the area in 1987 and 2003 respectively. It hasn’t helped that the villagers are yet to benefit from Central schemes, under which funds are provided to dig borewells and eradicate water scarcity.
