MCC to seek 4.5 TMC of drinking water for Mysuru

Kukkarahalli Lake must be conserved in coming days as the lake is getting polluted due to various reasons, opined council members

The Mysuru City Corporation has decided to request the state government for 4.5 TMC of drinking water for the city till June 2017.

The decision was taken at a special council meeting held at MCC council hall, on Monday. The Council sanctioned the resolution adopted at the special session of the Karnataka legislature on Cauvery water. Addressing the members, Mayor B L Bhyrappa said that MCC special council supports the resolution of the legislature sessions and we would request the state government to provide 4.5 TMC of drinking water for Mysuru city till June 2017.

Speaking on the occasion, former Mayor Ayub Khan said: “It is high time for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the Cauvery issue as the law and order in both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu has gone for a toss over Cauvery issue.”

Former Mayor Purushotham opined that Cauvery water is a national asset and the union government should equally distribute it failing which the conflicts will arise.

Speaking on the occasion, MLA Vasu said: “If the state government releases Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, Mysuru and the neighbouring regions will face serious drinking water problem.”

However, a few council members opined that the Kukkarahalli Lake which was a drinking water source must be conserved in the coming days as the lake is getting polluted due to various reasons.
