The month-long protest being staged by farmers, Kannada organisations and JD(S) workers, came to an end on Wednesday after Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced that water would be released to the canals from August 10. At a meeting held in Bengaluru and presided over by the chief minister on Wednesday, the state government succumbed to pressure exerted by farmers and elected representatives of Mandya district. However, water is being released only for drinking purpose and for livestock. So, farmers are advised not to take up agricultural activities. As soon as news spread that the meeting was fruitful and water would be released as per their demand, farmers protesting near Visvesvaraya's statue, turned jubilant. Raitha Sangha district president Shambunahalli Suresh said that the chief minister has yielded to the demands of the farmers who have been staging protests for a month.

Farmers demand release of water from Harangi 29.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The farmers of catchment areas and JD(S) workers staged a protest in front of the Harangi reservoir on Saturday, demanding the release of water from the reservoir to the canals. The farmers accused the government of showing negligent attitude in releasing water to the canals even after the reservoir is full. The protesters shouted slogans against the state government and the officials of the Irrigation Department. The protest was led by former minister B A Jeevijaya and Shirangala farmers leader S S Chandrashekar. 'Water to Tamil Nadu' Jeevijaya said that, without releasing water to the canals, water from the reservoir is being released into the river.

With the decline in rainfall, water is required for preparation of paddy seedlings, he reminded. Receiving the memorandum from the protesters, Irrigation Department executive ...
