BELGAUM: The Maharashtra government
on Wednesday rejected the state
government’s request for 2 TMC ft of
water from the Koyna reservoir to tide
over the prevailing drought in border
areas of the district. Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore spoke to Union
Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, urging
him to expedite the water release.
Pawar was said to have replied that he
will tell Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister
Ajith Pawar to look into the matter. The Karnataka government had placed the
request to slake the thirst of villagers
living in the border areas of Belgaum
district. The Maharashtra government, though,
had agreed to release 2 TMC ft of water.
Villages located on the banks of Krishna
river, in Chikkodi, Raibag and Athani
taluks, are facing acute water scarcity.
