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 ...

Karimnagar: Telugu Desam district unit president Mr Ambati Joji Reddy on Tuesday he questioned the Chief Minister"s decision in inviting Mr Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy who had not just opposed the construction of the Kaleshwaram project but also did dharna in Kurnool. Speaking to the media at the party office in Karim-nagar, Mr Joji Reddy came down heavily on Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao for inviting AP CM, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy and Maha-rashtra Chief Mini-ster, Mr Devendra Fadnavis for the inaugural ceremony of KLIS.

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. ...

Want to know about the saviour of drought-stricken Indian villages? 12.6.2019
New Delhi: As Gajanand Dukre parks the water tanker in a drought-stricken Indian village, dozens of locals mostly women in saris, come running with jerry cans, buckets and stainless steel pots. Over the next two hours, Dukre helps them empty the 12,000-litre (3,170-gallon) tank, providing a lifeline to this small community as India reels from one of its worst droughts in years. "We are working overtime," says 41-year-old Dukre, who conducts four rounds of deliveries a day to hamlets around Shahapur in the parched western state of Maharashtra. Dukre is one of 37 drivers operating government-run water tankers in the area, which is situated around 100 kilometres (60 miles) from India's financial capital Mumbai. The tankers run seven days a week between March and June when water is at its scarcest in India. The Asian giant's hot season has been particularly harsh this year, with temperatures rising above 50 degrees Celsius (122 Fahrenheit) in Rajasthan state. Almost half of India, an area ...

Islamabad: Pakistan's economic growth in the financial year ending in June is expected to hit 3.3 per cent, well below the target of 6.3 per cent, as the government failed to meet targets in nearly all sectors, according to the Economic Survey.
