Tamil Nadu farmers in dilemma over drought situation 28.6.2017
Chennai: The failure of two consecutive monsoons from 2015 is likely to push the price of paddy by at least 20 per cent during the Pongal season next year. The overall production of rice in Delta and other districts has been hit more than 40 per cent. Farmers had been relying on ground water for cultivation, but now they face a situation where the ground water is also drying up. While ground water was extracted at 40 feet earlier, following the drought, one has to go as low as 200ft to 600 ft in the delta region to get water. This is leading to seawater intrusion affecting the crops. Sowing of seeds got delayed due to shortage of water and the November rains flooded the area completely damaging the crops. This caused huge loss to the farmers and paddy is the best crop for cultivation in the region. Arupathy S. Kalyanam, President of the Thanjavur Delta farmers said, "Agro climatic zonal cropping, judicial water management and supporting irrigational needs, are to be addressed to save the plight of ...

CM suggests setting up of SPV for drain-cleaning 28.6.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, June 27 Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today suggested setting up of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to minimise "negative impact" of multiplicity of agencies on cleaning of city's drains. Lack of desilting and cleaning of drains leads to waterlogging and subsequent traffic jams during monsoon. The suggestion comes at a meeting of the Apex Committee to review flood-control measures, chaired by the Chief Minister. "There is multiplicity of agencies in the city as far as cleaning of drains is concerned. We must try for an SPV for better coordination and cleaning. Such an integrated body will help in the long term," he said. Kejriwal also said till such a body is in place, authorities should coordinate efforts to prevent problems including of waterlogging during the monsoon season. "The process of cleaning the drains being used by the Public Works Department and the municipal corporations in most of the cases is very primitive. Garbage from the drains is kept on the side of the road to dry up and ...

2-day special assembly session starts today 28.6.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, June 27 Reservation for city students in 28 DU colleges, a House committee report on desilting of drains, and weightage for Delhi-domicile aspirants in teacher recruitment will dominate the proceedings during a two-day special session of the Delhi Assembly starting tomorrow. A senior government official said AAP MLAs are also likely to table a resolution demanding ownership rights to those who were allotted small plots of gram sabha land under the Centre's 20-point programme around four decades ago. However, the government has not made public the entire agenda for the session, which BJP MAL Vijender Gupta alleged is a tactic to "deprive" the Opposition of any chance or possibility to raise any issue. "The government shrouds the agenda under the secrecy as per its cunning strategy...It is an attack on democratic functioning of the government," Gupta said. An official said, "On the second day, the MLAs will raise the issue of reservation for city students in 28 DU colleges that get financial aid ...

Devinagar citizens worry over toxic groundwater 28.6.2017
Hyderabad: Alleged gross negligence of the municipality is causing residents of Devinagar anxiety over the quality of water they are forced to consume. Residents claim that the Ramakrishnapuram Lake is contaminated and now with the rains, this contamination has seeped into the groundwater.   When the borewell motors are switched on, an inexplicable and terrible foul smell emanates from the water. While they await municipal action on this, residents are using bleaching powder to combat the foul smell and discoloration.  Says Devinagar resident T. Madhusudhan Rao, "I had alerted the GHMC last week about the foul smell of the groundwater. They checked the manholes near my house, suspecting them to be clogged and even checked for leakage of sewage drains, but there was nothing. The lake has polluted the groundwater", he said. For the last couple of weeks, the lake water has been frothing, evidently from some effluents released into it recently. Says area corporator K. Sridevi ...
