Pawar had visited parts of Baramati tehsil in Pune district recently to take a stock of the drought situation and raised his concerns during Friday's meeting, the NCP said in a statement.

"Fodder camps for cattle should not be closed. Not enough water is being supplied by tankers. We demanded that government take necessary steps," it quoted Ajit Pawar, former deputy chief minister, as saying.

Issues related to the newly-set up government medical college in Baramati also figured in the discussion, the statement added.
