TN declared drought-hit

The failure of the north east monsoon, with a deficiency of 62% rainfall, has left Tamil Nadu in distress. Tamil Nadu chief minister O Panneerselvam declared that all 32 districts in the state were drought hit and promised to increase the number of working days under the rural job guarantee scheme (MGNREGS) from 100 to 150 to help agricultural labourers who lost their livelihood.
