India: Monsoon hits drought-stricken Maharashtra

Finally, India’s annual monsoon has covered some parts of the western state of Maharashtra. Conditions are becoming favourable for further advancement into the southern part of the country, a weather department official said on Thursday.

The monsoon has covered southern parts of Maharashtra and drought hit regions of the state are likely to get good rainfall in the next few days, K.S. Hosalikar, a senior official of the state-run India Meteorological Department, told reporters.

“In the next two-three days, monsoon is likely to cover some more parts of Maharashtra,” he said. Maharashtra is the country’s top producer of onions and summer-sown pulses.
