Tourist season begins, Dharamsala faces water shortage 21.5.2018 The Tribune

Dharamsala, May 20

Dharamsala is facing drinking water shortage with the beginning of the tourist season.

Residents said the city had sufficient water supply until 2005-06. But as the population grew and tourist arrivals increased, the pressure on water supply lines also rose manifold.

It is now rather difficult to get food cooked with limited water supply, residents said. Hoteliers said visitors often complained that they do not get enough water for their daily chores, and this had negatively impacted their business. Many public toilets in the city had to be shut due to water shortage.

Vishal Bakshi, an official of the Irrigation and Public Health Department, said water supply had decreased from the sources and the department was not getting enough water at the moment. — PTI

Cauvery water dispute: MK Stalin, HD Kumaraswamy on same page; say will work on proper solution 20.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
DMK working president M K Stalin today batted for 'cordial ties' with the new government which will assume power in Karnataka and asked the AIADMK regime to work for a solution to the Cauvery issue through talks. Subsequently JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy too favoured bilateral talks to solve the issue. Cordial ties should be created with the new government and a solution hammered out through talks, Stalin said at a function at Nagapattinam district "Though we have got a legal victory, water to the necessary extent should be received and farmers should be provided with that," he said. If farmers were not provided with water for irrigation, DMK would steer protests to get it, he said. He said that during the previous DMK regime, former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had got Cauvery water for Tamil Nadu through his 'friendly attitude' with his Karnataka counterparts. "Thalaivar (leader) Kalaignar fulfilled everything by establishing friendly ties with neighbouring States." DMK, meanwhile, said its leader Stalin ...

From camels to catfish, Algeria boosts fish farming in the Sahara desert 20.5.2018 The Tribune
Touggourt (Algeria), May 20 In a corner of his sprawling farm, Milouda Mohammed proudly unveiled his latest venture — a pond full of catfish that could herald a new future for farmers like him on the Sahara desert. He is hoping to earn extra income from selling fresh, farmed fish from the world’s largest and hottest desert and use the water to irrigate his olive and date trees and vegetables. “Five years from now, I’m expecting different kinds of products from this land,” said Mohammed, 49, clad in thick, long-sleeved overalls, oblivious to the searing afternoon sun. The 15-hectare farm, some 600 km (370 miles) by car from the capital Algiers, bustled with chickens, quails, ducks, camels, goats and sheep - a hive of activity in this stark landscape where, for miles, there is little else besides sand. “I’m excited about this. Inshallah, it works,” he added, using the Arabic phrase for “God willing” as he threw some home-made feed of leftover chicken and vegetables into the pond. Farming fish in the desert ...

JD(S)-Congress govt faces multiple challenges in Karnataka 20.5.2018 DNA: India
From arch rival to coalition partners, the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) face multiple challenges once they form a coalition government in Karnataka. The foes-turned-friends will have to keep their vote banks — including the rival Lingayat, Vokkalinga communities, and Dalits and Muslims — in good humour even while pursuing the coalition dharma. The crucial test will be in striking a seat sharing deal for the 28 Lok Sabha seats in 2019 general elections. This will be quite crucial as JD(S) has quietly made inroads into the strongholds of Congress in the recently concluded assembly election and caused it maximum damage. About 40 per cent polled Muslim and Dalit votes went to the JD(S) though the two communities traditionally supported the Congress. On top of it, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had dubbed JD(S) as BJP's B team, which was rebutted strongly by HD Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy. It is to be seen how both the parties can forget past to start a fresh beginning in the ...

Modi lists 5 Ts for farm sector revolution 20.5.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chatta (Jammu), May 19 Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday gave the mantra of five essential Ts — training, talent, technology, timely action and trouble free approach — for bringing a technological revolution in the agricultural sector. He asked the agricultural scientists that their endeavour should be aimed at doubling the earnings of the farmers through technological innovations. The Prime Minister was referring to climatic changes, including rapidly melting glaciers and water scarcity in the country with majority of farmers depending on rains for irrigation, and said their (agricultural scientists) approach should be “per drop, more crop”. PM Modi said this while delivering the convocation address at the 6th convocation of the Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology-Jammu (SKUAST-J) on its main campus at Chatta. During his 28-minute speech, the PM urged the agricultural scientists to revisit their strategies that must meet the growing challenges of ...
