New Delhi: Tamil Nadu on Tuesday demanded release of the entire quantity of 9.19 TMC feet of water for June and 31.24 TMC feet of water for July from Karnataka. The demand was made by Tamil Nadu at a meeting of the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA) here when the state sought the Authority's directions to Karnataka in this regard. Tamil Nadu also demanded that Karnataka should thereafter release water for the remaining months as per the pattern of releases prescribed by the Cauvery River Tribunal and modified by the judgement of the Supreme Court for the irrigation season/water year 2019-20.

Karimnagar: Late monsoon delays kharif sowing, farmers worried 21.6.2019
Karimnagar: Farmers in undivided Karimnagar district have yet to begin sowing in the kharif season, due to the delay in the monsoons. Usually, by the first week of June, agricultural operations such as ploughing of fields, levelling of soil, removing of weeds, applying fertilizers and sowing seeds should be.   Farmers in undivided Karminagar district are worried over the delay in the rains and that the late sowing of seeds will result in poor yielding of crops. "Anticipating rain after the first week of June, I have sown cotton seeds in six acres of land. If the region gets rain, the seeds and fertilizers which I applied will be saved, Otherwise, I will incur a huge loss," said Thirupathaiah, a farmer from Ramadagu mandal. In 2016-17 the undivided Karimnagar district recorded 1,266.02 mm rain, in 2017-18 it received 701.8 mm rainfall and in 2018-19 as much as 705.04 mm rainfall was recorded.

Congress divided on Kaleshwaram project 20.6.2019
Hyderabad: Congress MLA T. Jaya Prakash Reddy, also kno-wn as Jagga Reddy, said he will attend the launch of the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project and sees nothing wrong in Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy attending as well. This issue has shown up the differences within the Congress as two days ago  Congress Legislative Party leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka had opposed the Kaleshwaram project and had written to the AP Chief Minister requesting him not to attend the function. Mr Vikramarka said that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao changed the design of the project and named it Kaleshwaram, when the late Congress Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy had called it the Pranahitha-Chevella. He said that by redesigning the project, the TRS government had indulged in corrupt practices. He said that if Mr Reddy attends the launch, it will indicate that he supports the irregularities of the TRS government. Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Mr Jaya Prakash Reddy said that ...

Nellore: 400-kg plastic covers seized 14.6.2019
Nellore: Finally, the Nellore Municipal Corporation has realised the need to prevent sale of plastic covers having less than 50 microns thickness, probably following choking of drainage canals with plastic covers in the city. As many as six irrigation canals pass through Nellore city and they have become drainage canals over the years because the ayacut had been transformed into residential layouts. The canals with a width of 20-30 feet used to carry storm water from the city but now, they have been reduced to 2-5 feet from their original size due to illegal construction of houses and silt deposits. The sewage overflow from these canals is a regular phenomenon and a major reason for this is the plastic material dumped into the canals by people living in the vicinity. The sanitary wing had arranged an iron mesh in the culverts and canals passing through the city to prevent garbage and plastic covers from blocking the water flow in the canals sometime back.   However, the initiative, which was meant ...

Heat, drought & water crisis: Take action fast 14.6.2019
Samuel Johnson, the poet and lexicographer, famously said: "When two Englishmen meet, their first talk is of the weather." That most British of traits has now been adopted by many of us, and not because we did not have a choice of a conversation filler. The weather is no longer just meteorological murmuring. It"s becoming more erratic and extreme, affecting our lives and livelihoods. In 2017 alone, there were 2,726 deaths in India that were directly attributed to extreme weather-related events such as heatwaves, droughts, floods, etc, causing an economic loss of about $13.8 billion in the year, according to Global Climate Risk Index 2019. This week, alarm bells rang again. Delhi recorded an all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius, with peak power demand in the nation"s capital hitting a record at 6,686 megawatts. Four elderly persons from Tamil Nadu, travelling on a train from Agra to Coimbatore, succumbed to the extreme heat. Rain has hit Kerala, Mumbai and parts of western India. ...
