Solapur, Satara and Sangli are neighbouring districts in Western Maharashtra but due to geographical and topographical reasons weather patterns are vastly different. While some areas are flooded due to excessive rainfall, others are desperately hoping for more rain and trying to make it happen too by spending Rs. 30 crores on cloud seeding. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis says, "This is a matter of huge concern for us. If we observe recent trends, the rain comes late, there is a drought. Then four months of rain comes in 15-20 days. We have understood this trend and we have formulated a climate change mitigation plan."
