Mangaluru, Mar 2: In response to the upcoming summer season, Dinesh Gundu Rao, the district in-charge minister of Dakshina Kannada, has directed concerned officials to take proactive measures to prevent any shortage of drinking water.

During a meeting held at the DC office on Saturday March 2, Dinesh emphasized the importance of readiness in addressing potential water scarcity issues. He stated that while there are currently no reports of drinking water shortages in Dakshina Kannada district, it is essential for the administration to be prepared to tackle any such situation that may arise in the future.

Dinesh highlighted that the water level in various minor dams across the district is satisfactory, with priority given to ensuring an ample supply of drinking water. In case of a shortfall, water can be sourced from the AMR dam of Netravati, and cooperation from entities such as MRPL and SEZ is expected.

The minister reassured that there will be no compromise in the provision of drinking water and mentioned a Rs. three crore grant allocated in the drought relief fund for Dakshina Kannada. Additional aid will be provided if required.

Key officials including zilla panchayat CEO Dr K Anand, ADC Santhosh Kumar, Mangaluru City Corporation commissioner Anand, and others were present during the meeting.
