Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: Congress, BJP plays blame game, North Karnataka parched 26.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The dispute over Mahadayi river which has been on the boil since the 80s, has reached a flash point in the parched North Karnataka region in the run-up to the state Assembly elections. The farmers here want Karnataka to build a series of dams, canals and barrages to route Mahadayi river water to the Malaprabha basin and the namesake dam off Saundatti in Belgaum district to meet the drinking and irrigation requirements of the water-scarce Bagalkot, Gadag, Dharwad and Belgaum districts. Over 500 farmers from the region including several women and children are leaving on Wednesday night for Delhi under the umbrella organisation Karnataka Rayat Sena (KRS).

Gujarat govt's water conservation mission has no checks in place 26.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Gujarat government is going overboard with the water conservation drive to be kicked off on May 1. Under the drive, work will be given to private organisations but the government does not have any system to inspect the work they carry out. The government is going to pay NGOs and other organisations for dredging and desilting check dams, lakes and other water bodies, but no third-party inspection system has been set up as part of the mechanism. The drive, 'Sujalam Sufalam Jal Sanchay Abhiyan', will run for the whole month of May. The NGOs, private builders or contractors can do dredging and desilting in water bodies, and construct check dams so that more water can be collected rather than being wasted. In 2002 and 2009, the government had initiated a similar drive, but almost all the bori-band dams collapsed in a few months. Irregularities in construction of check dams and dredging and desilting were also reported during the audit by agencies including the CAG. The state has not yet decided on third-party ...
