ANSWER: Haryana
Seeking River Saraswasti, centre-Haryana join hands to revive riverThe Centre and the Government of Haryana joined hands on 20th July 2017 to revive the long lost River Saraswati and provide water to the drought-prone areas of India.

Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas (Independent Charge) Dharmendra Pradhan and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar witnessed the signing of the `Memorandum of Agreement`.

The Haryana Government and ONGC have signed a Memorandum of Agreement for drilling of 10 water wells along the Petro Channel of Saraswati River up to a depth of 400-500 meters, which will aim at providing water in drought-prone areas.

Helping to restore the lost glory of River Saraswati, the MoA will also retain the river`s beauty as well.

The MoA signed today will not just increase the availability of water in the region but will also help in efforts towards rediscovering the lost lineage of Saraswati River.

The ONGC project is an added advantage for the state.
