Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Sep 12: State water resources minister Ramesh Jarkiholi said that the first phase of the disputed Yettinahole irrigation project will be completed by June next year.

He held discussions with farmer leaders here about the land acquisition scheme for the works at Bengaluru. He said that the acquisition process is gaining momentum now and exuded confidence that first phase works under the project would be completed by June 2021.

"The irrigation projects undertaken by the water resources department need an investment of Rs 1.10 lac crore to complete. The chief minister has issued instructions to undertake irrigation projects at any cost even if that means raising loans. Therefore, there is no question of suspending any of the projects," he stated. He however confessed that there is a problem of fixation of price for land proposed to be acquired for Krishna upper bank project.

"We will hold discussions with the chief minister on this issue and steps will be taken soon. Under the Yettinahole project, works to lift components and gravitational canals will be completed and during the next monsoon season water will be released into Veda valley on an experimental basis," he assured.

    This is about first phase. We will see many phases, if we are still alive, being inaugurated. If Pumpwell Flyover took ten years, Yetthinahole might take 30 years.
    By the way, we have a new picnic spot in Karnataka: Chitradurga. The Check dam worth Rs 6.64 crore washed away by single rain as per Daiji report of Sat, Sep 12 2020 09:12:28 PM . Indian Engineering Marvel we need to nothing but admire.

    Currently that must be the main assurance. Even last year's flood relief has still not been fully given.
