Modi's alertness saves camera crew 30.8.2016 deccanherald.com
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's quick thinking averted possible drowning of a television crew covering the inauguration function of the first phase of the Sauni project. Before delivering his speech, Modi went to the dam near the village in Jamnagar district to officially inaugurate the Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation (Sauni) project. Modi, along with Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, reached the top of the bridge where he was supposed to push three buttons to open three gates of the dam. Patel said the television cameramen and their assistants had taken their positions in the bed of the dam to cover the event from below, so that they can capture release of water. "They were standing at a place which was near gate-1. As soon as Modi pressed the buttons, all the three gates opened one by one and huge amount of water started flowing below. When we all are watching the magnificent view of water falling from dam, Modi's alert eyes spotted these cameramen ...

PM reaches out to farmers in Gujarat 30.8.2016 deccanherald.com
Holding his first public rally in poll-bound Gujarat after assuming office in 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday reached out to farmers from the heartland of the restive Patel community after launching an irrigation project. Modi also launched a veiled attack on the Congress after inaugurating the first phase of the ambitious Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation (Sauni) project here, saying that polls can be won by dangling baits and "throwing pieces", but a country cannot be run by doing so. Targeting the Congress which had questioned the timing of his visit to poll-bound Gujarat, Modi said his government did not believe in "throwing pieces" to attract voters. "You can win polls by throwing pieces, but you cannot run a country by doing so. We do not believe in throwing pieces. We worked hard for almost 15 years for this project to bring transformation and development," Modi told a huge gathering at Sanosara village in Jamnagar district in the Patidar (or patel)-dominated Saurashtra ...

Hundreds of farmers from the Cauvery Delta region were arrested on Tuesday when they staged protests and tried to block rail and road traffic at different places across the state, seeking immediate release of the Cauvery water from Karnataka. The protests were held following Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiahs announcement that his government was not in a position to release the Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu and, would face legally the case filed by the neighbouring state in the Supreme Court seeking release of the Cauvery water. The police arrested hundreds of farmers in the Delta districts of Thanjavur, Trichy, Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam, who were backed by various political parties including the opposition DMK, the Congress, the Tamil Maanila Congress, the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, when they tried to hinder rail traffic. This is the second time in less than a month, the Delta farmers have organised a state-wide bandh. The protesting farmers sought setting up of the Cauvery Management Board and ...

Now, Puducherry moves SC for 7 tmcft Cauvery water 30.8.2016 deccanherald.com
Puducherry on Tuesday approached the Supreme Court seeking direction to Karnataka to release immediately at least 57 tmcft of water at Billigundlu reservoir, to receive its share of at least 7 tmc ft of water from Tamil Nadu to save the standing crops in Karaikal region. The union territory, which identified itself as Pondicherry in an application, contended that Karnataka denied the share of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry without any compunction, despite receiving copious rainfall in 2016. 'K'taka flouting directions' Karnataka was, with impunity, flouting the directions of the supervisory committee and denying the allotted share of the Cauvery river water to the lower riparians, it said. "Karnataka did not care to give the minimum requirement for Tamil Nadu as well as Pondicherry. So far as Pondicherry is concerned, their standing crop of paddy is now perishing," it maintained. Supporting Tamil Nadus plea for 50 tmcft of Cauvery water for its samba crops, the union territory claimed that during the ...
