Scheme was an inspiration for them to live 24.5.2017
Kalpetta: The women working under the MGNREGA in Pozhuthana village panchayat in Wayanad are a harried lot as they have not received their wages for the last four months. Atholi Iyyathu, 70, lives with her daughter-in-law at Pozhuthana after she was abandoned by her son. She told DC at Pinangode, Pozhuthana, that she would not be able to pay her debts borrowed for the treatment of her grandson as she has not received her wages. She was worried about the upcoming Ramadan month, and asked why the authorities are denying the NREGA benefits to the poor. "My husband left me at an early age and since then I have been living with the children," she said. Her son who got married also left her, abandoning her daughter-in-law and grandchildren. An aged Iyyathu has to look after the entire family. "But I was able to pull on with my earning from the NREGA for the last 15 years," she said. The same is the fate of Fathima Pulikkal, who was forced to join NREGA as her husband became a chronic patient. Fathima told DC ...

Telangana government to tap water from 3 rivulets 24.5.2017
Khammam: The TS government will tap water flowing to the Prakasam Barrage in AP through three rivulets – Aker, Munner and Palair in Khammam district. This appears to be part of an unofficial policy to not allow even a single drop of water to flow to other states. The three rivulets are key to the water levels at the Prakasam Barrage which is used by AP for kharif operations and the excess water stored in the Pulinchintala project for rabi. The three rivulets, whose origin is in Warangal and Nalogonda districts, merge into the River Krishna in AP and are important for Khammam district. The plan is two-fold  to make available some water for irrigation and increase the groundwater-levels. As many as 10 check-dams have been planned across the three rivulets in the district to irrigate at least 10,000 acres. Tirumalayapalem – the most drought-prone mandal in Khammam district — is the focus. Check dams on Akeru will come up at Hydarsaipet, Pindiprolu and Tippareddiguda under Tirumalayapalem mandal at a cost of ...

Chennai: The Madras high court has directed authorities to file a report on construction of a check dam across Kollidam river at Kumaramangalam-Aathanur villages in Nagapattinam district. A division bench comprising Justices R.Mahadevan and M.Govindaraj gave the directive and posted after four weeks, further hearing of a public interest litigation filed by C.Mohankumar from Nagapattinam district.
