Farmers warn 'Jail Bharo' on Oct 17 13.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Farmers of the district, who have been staging an indefinite protest for the past four days against illegal mining activities and demanding the release of water from Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) and Hemavathy reservoirs for summer crops, warned the government of staging a 'Jail Bharo' protest if their demands are not met. Addressing the agitators here on Friday, Raitha Sangha vice president Konasale Narasaraju said that the government is neglecting farmers. "If it fails to respond to the protest, it would become inevitable to stage a 'Jail Bharo' on October 17," he said. Pointing out that drought and insufficient rains are due to illegal mining activities, he said the district in-charge minister should convene a meeting and release water to all the canals under KRS and Hemavathy limits to enable farmers to take up cultivation of crops. The government has failed to distribute drought compensation. As the compensation amount is not reaching farmers, they are anxious. The authorities concerned should take ...

A day of protests in Mandya 10.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Urging to fulfil their demands and seeking a ban on illegal mining in Pandavapura taluk, various organisations staged separate protests in the city on Tuesday. Raitha Sangha members, led by MLA K S Puttannaiah, staged an indefinite protest, near Sir M Visvesvaraya statue, against unabated illegal quarrying at Pandavapura taluk. Speaking on the occasion, Puttannaiah pointed out that hundreds of illegal mining companies are using powerful explosives, looting natural resources. This would have an impact on Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) dam nearby. The department of Mines and Geology has failed miserably in checking illegal activities. There is no proper information on the number of quarries with valid licenses, as there is no clear mining policy in the state, he alleged. Pointing out that the water level has crossed 110 feet mark at KRS, the MLA also urged the government to convene the Cauvery Irrigation Consultative Committee meeting and release water into the canals to enable agricultural activities in the ...

Destinations along the Cauvery 9.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Recently, we visited two ancient temples in Mudukuthore inT Narasipura taluk of Mysuru district. The temples are situated on a small hillock and one has to climb 35 to 40 steps to reach the top. One temple is dedicated to Lord Mallikarjuna and the other is dedicated to Goddess Bhramaramba. Lord Mallikarjuna is in the form of a linga. These two temples are said to be in existence for several centuries now. The word Mudukuthore translates to 'a stream with a twist' in Kannada. The serene surroundings and the flowing Cauvery river enhance the beauty of the locale. According to the priest of the temple, the linga inside the sanctum sanctorum was installed by Sage Kapila in the ancient times when he was travelling towards the South. Just by the side of Mallikarjuna Temple, a temple has been built for Goddess Bhramaramba, wife of Lord Mallikarjuna. It is believed that the goddess assumed the form of a bhramara, which means bee in Sanskrit, in order to devour a demon called Sahasraksha. Thus the name, ...

Farmers unhappy with release of water into canals after end of sowing season 14.9.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Officials of the Cauvery Neeravari Nigam released the second installment of water into the canals of the district from the Krishnarajasagar (KRS) dam on Wednesday. However, farmers and experts are of the opinion that the water released will not be of much use to the farmers as the season for sowing paddy is over. The water can now be used for growing only ragi, jowar, horsegram and other short-term crops. As the monsoon failed in June and July, the farmers could not sow paddy. The sowing target was set at two lakh hectare area but only 50% has been achieved due to non-availability of water. As the government delayed the release of water into the canals, the farmers had staged protests. The government decided to release water after a high-level meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, was held on August 9. The release of water was with a rider that farmers should not grow either paddy or sugarcane. The second rotation of water has been released from September 13. However, it is not of much use to ...

Allow us to grow paddy or sugarcane, say farmers as KRS touches 100 ft 4.9.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The water level in Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) dam, which was hovering around 99 ft for a couple of days, crossed the 100-ft mark, on Monday. The water level of the dam was 100.20 ft on Monday evening. The inflow was 9,853 cusecs and outflow 6,000 cusecs. There has been an increase of seven feet of water in the KRS dam in the last seven days, due to heavy rain in the Cauvery basin districts. The water level in the dam on the corresponding day, last year, was 93.44 ft. Farmers have now urged the government to release water to Visvesvaraya canal to facilitate agricultural activities. Pointing out that the KRS dam has reached the 100-ft mark, the farmers have requested that they should be allowed to grow at least one crop this season. A few farmers' leaders said water has already been released into canals for 20 days, but as there was a condition that sugarcane and paddy should not be grown, farmers had not taken up sowing. Now, with the water level crossing the 100-ft mark in KRS dam, they should be allowed to ...

Water storage in major reservoirs still below average 4.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Even as rain pounded many parts of Karnataka in the past one week, major reservoirs were still far from their storage capacity which remained below average, officials said. "Though we received good rainfall in one week, dams are still below the average", said Dr G S Srinivasa Reddy, director, Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre. Reddy said that the Almatti dam in north Karnataka was full to its capacity but the inflow is not satisfactory. "Almatti dam is full because we are not releasing water into the canals. We are expecting more flow of water," he said. Data shows that Krishnaraja Sagar dam that provides water to Mysuru, Mandya and Bengaluru has 100 ft water against the full capacity of 124 ft Hemavathi has 2,893.27 ft water against the capacity of 2,922 ft.
