Mangaluru: Interesting flexes in city blame Moily, DVS for water shortage

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 13: Interesting flexes have made sudden appearance at a few spots in the city. The contents of the flexes, which show that they have been issued by the citizens of Dakshina Kannada district who are in deep slumber and have not been raising any questions, have severely taken MPs, D V Sadananda Gowda and M Veerappa Moily to task for strongly backing Yettinahole project and causing distress to the people of Dakshina Kannada district. It says that courtesy these two leaders, the people of the district are now compelled to consume filtered toilet water.

The flexes say that these two leaders were not elected to pocket commission out of Rs 13,000 crore which will go down Yettinahole coffers. "This project has rung death knell for lifeline of Dakshina Kannada district, Netravati, and rich biodiversity of Western Ghats. People of the district are now facing the need to drink filtered toilet water," they claim.

"People voted you to power not to move around in cars worth Rs 40 lac. Are you aware that the people here are facing dearth of water even to wash their butts after relieving themselves? You are advised to immediately sit in dharna in the state assembly to stop Yettinahole project forthwith. If you are not able to do this, alternatively you can resign and undertake fast unto death to make this happen, to prove that you are really servants of the people," the flexes advice the leaders.

The flexes have also a warning to the city municipal corporation officials at the bottom that if they remove these flexes without clearing the other unauthorized flexes in the city, the people may have to take their footwear in their hands. 

A separate flex has the photos of other people’s representatives from Dakshina Kannada.

Interestingly a final verdict on Yettinahole project is expected today.

    Mr Saddu Gowda, in his capacity as CM gave administrative approval for the Yettinahole project by a BIG smile Betrayed his own people of Dakshina Kannada....Dr Moily supported as a MP of Kolar belt region or else he cant survive there, thats understood.If Sadananda Gowda not given unilateral approval without consulting any in dakshinakannada..shows his political selfishness...lets see Bangalore North people how many days holds or one day he has to come for a stand in Dakshina Kannada...We think all to boycott both Mr Saddu and Dr Moily in any functions of undivided southcanara

    Selling Pakoda outside an ATM where people que up to take our their money is also a job.
    The next 5 years is going to be interesting.

    In case sand mining is not allowed in rivers people of dakshina kannada will die for lack of water and food.
    One more reason for shortage of drinking water is giant industries of the district are consuming 75% of the water. All giant industries should have some guidelines and restriction to use Nethravati river water. They should have their own arrangement to use river water from January to May.

    Who is a politician ?
    Politician is person who creates problems first and gives solutions to the general public .
    The cost of the problem/ cost of the solution or both must be paid by the public.
    A politician must be sare jahan se accha corrupt , but voter friendly in his constituency. People never stop support till his end.
    But ....unfortunately these two are useless for the voters. Impotent and liars and half dead .

    Water woes of Mangaloreans is not becoz of yettinahole matter. increase water storage dam height for storage of water & repair all leakages of pipes & remove all illegal unauthorized connections or put up new good pipeline from tumbe for the smooth running of water domestic users.

    There is no mistake from Sadananda Gowda or Moily. Nobody try to understand correctly what they told. It shows that there is lack of knowledge in our District people. THEY SAID ONLY EXCESS WATER IN RAINY SEASON WHICH IS GOING TO JOIN SEA WILL BE DIVERTED IN YETINNAHOLE PROJECT. AND THAT TOO IN RAINY SEASON ONLY. We have failed to save rain water in Rainy season . We are famous for protesting only. Instead of wasting water ,it is better to divert to Chikaballapur.

    GR Prabhu you are absolutely right water will be taken in the rainy season. But because of the project huge trees are cut down and dynamites were used and due to that impact the water source has been affected. You just visit Adda hole and see the destruction done to the forest there. If it rains there there is flow of water ti the river. Its high time for DVS and moily to piss and supply water to the project. When Environmentalist asked the support against the project we the educated people of DK took it on the deaf years and now we have to suffer.

    Looks like u have better knowledge..
    Do u know what will happen to our ecosystem if this "extra" water that is diverted ? How will it effect the people??
    You are right in saying that we don't have knowledge in this matter, because if we did have neither bjp nor Congress would come to form government seriously.

    If you travel on Shiradi ghat during day time you will come to know about the destruction caused. During this rainy season, it is sure that entire shiradi ghat stretch is going to be washed away due to unscientific cutting of the mountains. It will take years together to stabilize the hills. Also due to the loose soil, dam will be filled with sand and mud, not water.

    Don’t blame Yettinhole Project for water shortage in Mangalore
    Yettinahole is only to supply excess water in the rainy season which otherwise go waste in to the sea
    Main reason for the shortage of water is proper storage capacity. Let the Government both Central and State give compensation to the land owners whose land going to be submerged.
    Take necessary actions to recharge ground water either by digging open wells ,water harvesting should be made compulsory whoever request for corporation water connections
    Give encouragement to those who do not use corporation connection by waiving license charges of building / house construction
    Stop concreting drains. Let the water seep under ground
    Water charges must be increased substantially so that people don’t waste water.

    Instead of this useless yettina hole project and spending crores, they could have gone for desalination of sea water project which would have been very very successful and useful.
    so no water for Kolar/chickbalapur nor Our lovely Kudla.
    Ya, but i am sure this is flop project is a public loot , (will bring bad to D.K people) and pocketed to these political leaders.

    What is the use of flexes or placards now? All of us should have united and fought against the Yettinahole project when it was mooted. Nobody from this area was bothered. We acted as if this was not our concern. Except for a few people who kept on protesting, the rest of us were only watching what we preferred to call, the fun. Trees were indiscriminately cut down around the Western Ghats and due to this, we will not receive adequate rainfall resulting in further shortage of water. This is only going to accentuate in the years to come. Mark my words, the worst is yet to come.
    Of course, both Moily and Sadananda Gowda have a very large part to play in this ill advised project. But how can the then district in charge minister Ramanath Rai not be faulted? He should have been the first to protest against this project, but leave alone protesting, he actually supported the project. What about Nalin Katil and Shobha Karandlaje? Besides making some noises, what did they do? Precious little. All of them must have benefited from the project in the form of commission.
    And the so-called intelligent people of our district, what did we do? Just kept quiet.
    Even now we are keeping quiet. Once it starts raining, we will forget all this Yettinahole project and go about our usual business. We will only remember the project next year around March when the water rationing starts. We get what we deserve. As long as we don't worry about nature, we will continue to get only this. Even today not a word is spoken about how to control this scarcity of water. Forget about the rich and the ministers. They have money to get water from the tankers. What about the poor people like us? Remember only the crying baby gets milk. If we keep quiet even now, we will have only ourselves to blame.

    Two things Politicians work very hard for a long run
    1. Nodding their head in an meeting.
    2. Waving their hands when in need of votes,
    People are being fooled- you’ve voted. Whom did you?
