India rejects Pak's claim of using water as 'weapon of war' amid Kashmir turmoil 20.8.2019
New Delhi/Islamabad: Accusing India of waging "fifth-generation warfare", Pakistan said on Monday that New Delhi had failed to inform it about the release of water from a dam that could cause flooding across the border. India, however, rejected the claim saying that under the terms of a water treaty between the two nations it had informed Pakistan about the release of excess water late on Monday when it crossed a certain threshold. Relations between the neighbours, already hostile, have been further strained after India revoked the special status of the Jammu and Kashmir region. Pakistan reacted with fury, cutting transport and trade links and expelling India's ambassador in retaliation. Islamabad said the unexpected release of water into the River Sutlej that flows from India to Pakistan was part of an attempt by New Delhi to flout the longstanding treaty between the countries. "They try to isolate diplomatically, they try to strangulate economically, they're trying to strangulate ...

Kozhikode: City dwellers, as well as experts, call for collective action to enable sustainable development, aiding in overcoming and adapting to the changed climate pattern. The city and adjacent areas witnessed unprecedented floods uprooting many from their moorings to the confinement of relief camps. Former mayor V. K. C. Mammad Koya MLA said that heavy rain received in three days had ended up in disaster and colossal losses. "Rehabilitation of people living in sensitive areas is an arduous task. Disaster management will become an unavoidable skill if this pattern repeats," he told DC "Urgently, sand and mud accumulated in drainages, canals and rivers need to be removed as it hurdles the easy water flow into the sea."

Godavari water eyed to solve crisis in Hyderabad 16.8.2019
Hyderabad: In this season of plenty, 1.5 lakh residents of Gopanpally, Puppalguda, the Financial District and other areas are still suffering from an acute water crisis. Though reservoirs on the Godavari and the Krishna rivers are brimming, a large section of the city is facing a water shortage because the Manjira river basin is dry. Against its capacity of 30 tmc ft (thousand million cubic feet), the Singur reservoir currently has a mere 0.46 tmc ft of water. The deficit rainfall in catchments areas like Latur and Bidar is said to be the reason for parts of the city having water scarcity.
