After lunch, Amit Shah talks loos, sops 23.5.2017
Theratpally (Nalgonda): Farmer Gode Beerappa, sarpanch Ramulamma and Dalit women in this tiny village with whom BJP national president Amit Shah interacted and took lunch are on the cloud nine at being the centre of attention. On the menu was white rice, tomato pappu, sambar, alu curry, veg biryani, mirchi ka salan and ice cream. Sitting on a chair in the modest house of Beerappa, Amit Shah enquired about problems faced by them while TS BJP chief K. Laxman played the role of an interpreter. Z category security was all around and police had a tough time keeping the onlookers at bay. The village itself, and the route, was full of posters, cut-outs and banners welcoming the BJP president. “Sir, we are facing drinking water problem. There are also no proper irrigation facilities for the lands,” Beerappa told Amit Shah. He was offered coconut water. Asked if the house has a toilet, Beerappa replied in the negative. As he was chatting, he invited the other members of the family members to join him even as ...

Working his brains through art and craft from water hyacinth 23.5.2017
Hyderabad: Shaik Abdul Mujeeb, a 28-year-old electronic engineer, didn’t want to follow the beaten paths and instead tried to do something innovative. He founded Allika Weave, a startup that uses dried water hyacinth to make handicraft items. Located in Tenali, Allika Weave produces laptop bags, coasters, handbags, lamp shades and dining mats. Normally, clearing water bodies of water hyacinth is a costly proposition. Government tenders that amount to crores are given for this purpose. Known locally also as the Terror of Bengal, its potential for damage is high. It blocks the openings of canals, affecting smooth flow of irrigation water. Water Hyacinth is one of the fastest growing plants, seen also in lakes and ponds. It denies other plants and sea animals of sunlight and oxygen. The plant, periodically cleared of lakes and rivers under special efforts of the government, is often thrown on the banks of water bodies or burnt. Once it is burnt, there is another problem: it emits methane gas that is harmful ...

Kangra irrigation projects in limbo for want of funds 23.5.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Dharamsala, May 22 Various irrigation projects started by the present state Congress government in Kangra district are now in limbo due to changed policies of Centre and want of grant. Over 40 kuhls in Kangra district are lying incomplete. Some of the kuhls that are lying incomplete include GP Rajiana kuhl, Pathiar-Ambari kuhl, Sukkar kuhl from Manooni rivulet, Dhumal kulh in Shahpur and Rani di kuhl in Palampur. Kuhls are channels, in which water coming from the hill streams is channelised to the fields. It is the most eco-friendly method of irrigation practised in the hills. Sources in the IPH Department said 109 micro-hydel projects or kuhls in Himachal that were earlier approved by the Centre had been shelved. The projects have been shelved as the Centre has not released any fund for these schemes to the state government. As per the documents available with The Tribune, As many as 109 micro-hydel schemes worth Rs 348 crore were approved by the Union Ministry for Water Resources ...

2 reactors for nuclear project revive fear of water shortage 23.5.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 22 The approval of two additional reactors for the upcoming nuclear power project at Gorakhpur in Fatehabad has raised concerns of farmers, who worry that it would impact availability of the Bhakra water for irrigation in the area. “The project will spell doom for farmers of the area as they will be left with no canal water to irrigate their fields,” alleged Prahlad Singh Bharukhera, president of the Haryana Kisan Manch. At different points of time since 1984, when the idea of the project was first conceived, Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd ( NPCIL) had sought different quantities of water ranging from 400 cusecs to 180 cusecs for cooling. A perusal of the official records reveals that on June 25, 1984, the state Irrigation Department gave its consent to providing 400 cusecs of water for the project, which was to come up in nearby Kumharia village earlier. On January 3, 2006, the demand was scaled down to 320 cusecs. Again, on January 30, 2013, the Irrigation ...
