Legislator inaugurates cattle shed in Bagepalli

The government has sanctioned Rs 25 lakh to provide fodder to cattle in goshalas in the taluk, said legislator N Sampangi.

He was speaking at the inauguration of the cattleshed (goshala) organised at Mettemari in the taluk on Saturday.

As many as 123 taluks in the State hav been affected by brought. Gudibande and Bagepalli taluks are the worst affected in the district as the monsoon failed in the two taluks and there is acute drinking water crisis, he added.

The fodder has been stocked in the hobli centres of the taluk. The fodder, grown in the taluk has been bought from the government fund, Sampangi said and added that government must sanction more funds to the drought affected regions in the State, he said.

Drinking water

Emphasis will be given to provide drinking water in the taluk. Barrages will be constructed at Mettemari, Cheluru and Pathapalya. The scheme to provide drinking water from Chitravati Barrage to 123 villages in the taluk is underway, he added.

A tank in every village will be identified for supplying drinking water. Pipeline will be laid and a cistern will be construct at villages to ensure drinking water supply.

Some political parties are trying to garner votes under the pretext of fighting for permanent irrigation. However, people should not support such parties, the legislator added.

Zilla Panchayat president M V Krishnappa said farmers must fully make use of the goshalas as fodder is available for animals to brave the drought.

Road project

The stretch between Teemaakalapali Cross and Gudlupalli Cross in the taluk will be upgraded at a cost of Rs 50 lakh, said legislator N Sampangi.

He was speaking after performing ground breaking ceremony for the project, which was organised at Government Higher Primary School in Gudlapalli in the taluk. The basic infrastructure required by the people will be provided, he added.

The road project, a long cherished dream of the people of the region will commence soon. The four-km stretch will provide a link to NH 7 for the vehicles travelling from Chintamani and Andhra Pradesh.

“There should be no scope for politics in development. No one can hold power permanently. Only the work done during one’s tenure is taken into account,” Sampangi added.

Concrete roads have been constructed in150 Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes colonies in the taluk. Preference will be given for construction of underground drainage, installation of streetlights and providing drinking water facility, he added.
