Karkala: Vented dams will be built at 87 spots in Karkala constituency under the ‘Paschima Vahini’ scheme of the state government. MLA V Sunil Kumar laid the foundation stones at five spots.

Although, Karkala receives ample rainfall, by January end every year, rivers like Sita, Shambhavi and Swarna turn dry.

Due to which, agriculture suffers and there is a shortage of drinking water too. Addressing the issue, MLA Sunil Kumar wrote a letter to central government seeking the release of funds for the execution of ‘Paschima Vahini’ scheme. The central government has released Rs 75 crore for the same.

Zilla and taluk panchayat members, BJP leaders and activists participated in the foundation laying ceremonies.
