Fearing floods in state, Nitish Kumar opposes Centre's proposal of reservoirs 21.2.2017 DNA: India
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday opposed Central government's Allahabad-Haldia national inland waterway claiming that the proposed reservoirs at Buxar and other places enroute was likely to aggravate the annual flood problems of the state by interrupting the continuous flow of River Ganga.

Water Resources Minister M B Patil on Wednesday informed the Legislative Council that it would be unscientific to desilt the Tungabhadra dam, which has about 33 tmcft of silt deposition. Replying to N S Boseraju (Congress), the minister said that a minimum of 66,000 acres would be required to dump the silt from the reservoir. The Tungabhadra dam, near Hosapete in Ballari district, was constructed 65 years ago. About 0.5 tmcft of silt is getting deposited annually. Desilting should have been planned from the time of construction, he said. He said that to offset the silt, a balancing reservoir would be constructed in Navali village in Koppal district. The land required would be 18,000 acres and the estimated cost of the proposed reservoir is Rs 5,600 crore. Dryland would be acquired and hence the land acquisition process would not be difficult. The Tungabhadra Board would have to approve the new project, he added. As per the report card of the department which was released recently, the silt deposition has ...
