New Delhi [India], July 25 (ANI): Emphasising the importance of water conservation, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said water has to be saved and at the same time pollution of available water resources needs to be stopped.

Interacting with members of the Indian Plumbing Association virtually, Gadkari said the protection of ecology and environment is our prime responsibility.

The Minister said awareness of proper and careful use of water among citizens is very essential.
