A day of protests in Mandya 10.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Urging to fulfil their demands and seeking a ban on illegal mining in Pandavapura taluk, various organisations staged separate protests in the city on Tuesday. Raitha Sangha members, led by MLA K S Puttannaiah, staged an indefinite protest, near Sir M Visvesvaraya statue, against unabated illegal quarrying at Pandavapura taluk.

Pointing out that the water level has crossed 110 feet mark at KRS, the MLA also urged the government to convene the Cauvery Irrigation Consultative Committee meeting and release water into the canals to enable agricultural activities in the ...
