From an Indian forum discussing this issue, a sensible post IMO:

"Re:Coca cola draining water allegation a lie !! Reply.. Now you acknolwedge that Plachimada is facing water shortage. Let us agree for argument sake, that Coca Cola is not the reason for this situation. Okay. Granted that rain fall in the area had been poor over the last several years and that is the reason for the ground water depletion. Now what do you do when confronted with a situation of scarcity? Sensible people will curtail usage to make the available resources last longer till the next rainy season comes. Why are we then allowing a water-intensive industry to function in a water scarce area? By your own argument, Coca cola has no right to function in a water-scarce area. Govt. should ask them to shift to coastal area to enable use of desalinated water for their production.
