Drinking water for anganwadis by Aug 15, govt tells HC

Bangalore, July 15, 2013, DHNS:
The government on Monday submitted to the High Court that all anganwadis in the State would be provided with drinking water by August 15.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice B V Nagarathna had taken suo motu cognisance of, and was hearing a PIL regarding poor drinking water and sanitation facilities at the anganwadis. Advocate General Ravivarma Kumar, appearing for the government, submitted that the State had 64,518 anganwadis, out of which 58,313 were in rural areas, 3,510 in urban areas and 2,691 in tribal areas.

According to the government’s submission, 58,103 anganwadi centres had facilities to obtain pure drinking water. The rest would be equipped with these facilities soon. The court has directed the State to submit an affidavit in this regard.

‘Give up excess land’

The High Court has directed the Bangalore Development Authority to drop the acquisition proceedings of around 300 acres of excess land notified for the Peripheral Ring Road project. The BDA had issued a preliminary notification for these 300 acres in November 2010, which was later challenged in the court by Gowramma.

A single judge had struck down the proposal for the construction of the Peripheral Ring Road and BDA challenged this order.

A division bench headed by Justice K L Manjunath partly allowed the petition, clearing the proposal for the construction of the Ring Road, but directed the BDA to drop the acquisition of 300 acres of excess land.
