Mangaluru: Rs one crore released for Gujjarakere lake development


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Apr 28: MLA representing Mangaluru South constituency, J R Lobo, visited Gujjarakere lake, where development works have re-started, along with officials, and inspected the ongoing works on Sunday April 26.

Speaking to media representatives thereafter, he revealed that a sum of one crore rupees in the form of grant has already been released for undertaking development works here, through the department of minor irrigation. He noted that the works, which have been taken up after a pause, have been progressing well.

'Before taking up this work, we thought it would be easy to complete dredging work. But now the real size of the problem is coming to the fore. Here accumulated silt is much more than anticipated, and its quantum could not be properly assessed so far. During the last three weeks, lot of silt has been removed from the lake. But untimely rains have resulted in rising level of water in the lake, creating bottlenecks in the development works. At present, the depth of the lake is between 20 and 30 feet, and it will be very difficult to remove silt further without emptying water from the lake,' Lobo explained.

The MLA already has discussed the gravity of the problem with the officials of minor irrigation department, and suggested to press into service dredting machine for the work. He said this machine will begin to work here in a couple of days, after which water would be pumped out and dredging work will be undertaken again.

He has asked the concerned to complete all the works within a month.

When several locals complained to the MLA that water from local drains was flowing into this lake, he promised them to put in place alternative system for the discharge of drain water once the first phase of work is completed.

Local corporator, Ratikala, officials of the city corporation, official of minor irrigation department, Shambhu Rao, T K Sudhir, and Ramanand Poojary, were present.

    does not make sense to take care of local drains later after the 1st phase. all drainds should be stopped first and then restoration of this project should begin right ?

    Dear Mr Lobo good work and we appreciate the work you been doing but I just seen these poor labour working without any safety not even a shoe's we need to add the safety precaution in the contract we giving to these companies because if this project is 1 core can't he spend a 2000 rs in safety of this poor labour if tomorrow suddenly 1 person get sink in water who will help them or thier family when they working near lake it is very important to have a safety harness with rope tied to them so atleast we can pull them up. we should start implementing safety 1st rules in all the contract's so we can avoid injuries and death's in field. Thanks once again for the lake development .

    Appreciated this development should be done, knowingly this useless officers want to start during the rainy season as rain result to stop the work and rest of the fund distributed among them, same practice for the road repairing also
