Water crisis echoes at TP progress review meet

A few officials were pulled up for not taking action regarding water crisis in Mysuru region during the special progress review meeting of Mysuru Taluk Panchayat.

On Thursday, a special progress review meeting of Taluk Panchayat to discuss water crisis in Mysuru region was held at the Abdul Nazeer Sabh Auditorium at Zilla Panchayat. MLA G T Devegowda, who presided over the meeting, pulled up a few officials, engineers who failed to take necessary steps to address the drinking water issues in the region.

Devegowda gathered information from PDOs and members of various panchayats on the drinking water availability in their regions. Bogadi Panchayat, which has a population of around 10,000, has 14 bore wells of which a few need to be serviced and maintained properly to distribute uninterrupted drinking water.

Complaining about the bore failure in the Gungral chatra region, PDO said, “There are around 11 Gram Panchayats (GP) covering the region but there are no proper steps taken to maintain the bore wells in the region. Yelchalli village in the region has a poor drinking water facility and water is supplied in through tanks.”

Reviewing the progress and problems faced by people of various panchayats, Devegowda directed the concerned authorities to take immediate steps to overcome the water crisis.

DC D Randeep, Zilla Panchayat CEO Shivashankar, Taluk Panchayat Vice President Manjula and others were present.
