Mysuru, August 18:- Several villages on the banks of river Cauvery in Periyapattana taluk have been totally cut off due to the flood-like situation.
Deputy Commissioner Abhiram G Sankar visited the villages and took stock of the situation on Friday.
The DC said that boats need not be used as the villages have alternate road facility. He said that the boats can be used only when there are no other alternate roads. Now the villagers have to cover an extra distance of 25 kilometres to reach Periyapattana and other areas.
The officials have instructed the villagers not to cross the road till the water level reduces. (MR/KS).
