MLA K S Puttannaiah has said that water should be released into canals from the KRS dam to facilitate farmers to take up paddy cultivation. Addressing reporters here on Thursday, Puttannaiah said that the Irrigation Consultative Committee and District in-charge Minister M Krishnappa should take measures to release water from KRS, Hemavathy, Harangi and Kabini dams and save farmers in distress. With regard to the Mahadayi issue, he said that it is unfortunate that the 735-day protest by farmers has not yielded any results. "The Centre is worse than the British government. In support of the indefinite hunger stir for Mahadayi, farmers of Mandya district will stage a protest near Sir M V Statue in Mandya on July 21," he said.

Weak monsoon: Cauvery basin stares at another drought year 17.7.2017 deccanherald.com
It looks like the Cauvery basin will witness one more year of distress. Weak monsoon in the state so far has resulted in poor inflow into the four reservoirs in the Cauvery basin —KRS, Kabini, Harangi and Hemavathi — and the combined storage levels stood at 26 tmcft compared to 57.89 tmcft last year. Addressing a press conference in Bengaluru on Monday, Water Resources Minister M B Patil said the state government will wait for two more weeks and if the monsoon fails to pick up, it will convene a meeting of all stakeholders to decide on its next step of action. "Last year, the state was considered to be reeling under its worst drought during the last 40 years. The total storage in the four reservoirs of Cauvery basin stood at 57.89 tmcft this date last year. However, today, the combined storage level stands at 26 tmcft, less than half compared to last year," Patil said. He said the government is keeping its fingers crossed and hoping for good rain in the coming days. He said priority will be ...
