Use of treated water in farms a challenge 23.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, July 22 Though the Local Bodies Department has proposed to provide treated water free of cost from the sewage treatment plant (STP) at Khapar Kheri to farmers for irrigating their fields, the government faces the challenge of convincing farmers who are dependent on submersible tube wells for irrigation. The STP plant was inaugurated yesterday. As the farmers are heavily dependent on the electricity powered submersible tube wells which they use as per their convenience, officials are finding it difficult to persuade farmers to use the treated water. “If we are facing such a problem now when farmers need much water for paddy crop, it will be difficult to the put the water to irrigation use when the demand is less during the harvesting season or wheat cultivation,” said an official of the Soil and Water Conservation Department. Officials say a water channel is required to make use of the treated water. MLA OP Soni, who had inaugurated the plant yesterday, said, it would help ...

Lots of lung space, but lots of problems 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The plight of Saravana underscores the pathetic state of affairs in and around KR Market and Kalasipalyam. Saravana, in his 30s, had come to take part in 'Janaspandana-Citizens for Change', a civic grievance redress programme organised by DH and Prajavani on Saturday, to narrate his plight. A few weeks ago, while Saravana was walking on the footpath of the heavily congested Avenue Road, a slab gave way and he fell in the drain below. He broke his toes and sprained his legs. "There is no one in the BBMP to answer who is responsible for my condition and whom should I sue. I am paying the price for the BBMP's mistake," he said. A year ago, the BBMP sanctioned Rs 8 crore for improving the road and footpaths in Kalasipalyam, Avenue Road and KR Market but the contractor colluded with the civic body's engineer and tried to squander the money. Timely revelation prompted the BBMP to block the payment. Since then, the road and footpaths in the area have gone from bad to worse. Local corporator Prathibha's husband ...
