Team Udayavani, May 11, 2019, 8:39 AM IST

Udupi: The dredging work near Baje dam to draw water is in progress and enough water will be available for the next 15-20 days, informed Dr Jayamala after attending a meeting regarding the water problem and visiting the area on Friday.

No monetary problem

Water is being provided through 141 tankers to 126 villages in 84 GPs. A part of Kundapur and Karkala have been declared to be affected by drought. There is no monetary problem regarding water supply. Action will be taken to create a permanent solution to the water problem. Discussion have been held on the implementation of water conservation and rainwater harvesting. Decision has been taken to desilt 400 drains in the district. Private wells and bore wells are being used. Directions have been given for the implementation of multi-village drinking water project. Even before the election, I have conducted a meeting regarding water problem and given directions. There is opportunity to conduct desiltng through NREGA. The Deputy Commissioner and officials are doing their duties to solve the water problem, said Dr Jayamala.

Hindered due to MCC

Responding to a question, I have not met Deve Gowda who is receiving treatment at Mulur. Since the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is in effect, permission has been granted to only speak about drinking water problem and the relief to the fishermen, informed the minister.

Only CM knows his pain

Replying to a question from the media regarding the objection to CM’s visit to a resort Jayamala replied, Health is a personal issue. Only he knows his pain. He is doing good work. Will he not get tired?, she asked.

Responding to Yedyyurappa’s claim that Congress MLA’s are in contact, the minister said, all have dreams. One cannot say don’t dream. Even after the Lok Sabha results, I will remain this way (as a minister), she said.

Rs 10 lakh compensation to fishermen

The state government has ordered a total compensation of Rs 10 lakh, including Rs 6 lakh from Fishermen Suffering Relife Funds and Rs 4 lakh from the Chief Minister Relief fund to the families of the seven fishermen who were aboard the sunken deep sea trawler Suvarna Tribhuja. The union government must also provide the highest compensation, informed Dr Jayamala.
