It is the responsibility of every state to make water a subject of cooperation and coordination, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday. 

While addressing the first all India annual state ministers’ conference on Water, he said that states have to find ways to increase the use of 'treated water' for various purposes. 

"When treated water is reused, fresh water is conserved and it benefits the entire ecosystem. That's why water treatment and water recycling are essential," he said. 

Highlighting the importance of the circular economy in the field of water conservation, the Prime Minister informed that the government has laid a lot of emphasis on the circular economy in this budget. 

“Our rivers, our water bodies are the most important part of the entire water ecosystem," the Prime Minister said as he emphasised creating a network of waste management and sewage treatment in every state. 

He also stated that by making the Namami Gange Mission a template, other states can also start similar campaigns for the conservation of rivers. 

He also added that water vision @2047 is an important dimension of the journey of Amrit Kaal for the next 25 years. 

Modi said that Jal Jeevan Mission is a major development parameter of a state to provide water to every household. 

He said that when the public is associated with a campaign, they also get to know the seriousness of the work. 

He added, “When people joined the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a consciousness was awakened in the public as well.”
