'People and cattle should not suffer during summer'

Complete drinking water projects: ZP president

Zilla Panchayat President Rekha Huliyappagowda directed the officials to complete the drinking water projects which have been started already in the district, at the earliest. She said that steps should be taken in advance to avoid dearth of drinking water in the district.  

Speaking at the Karnataka development projects’ monthly review meeting at Zilla Panchayat auditorium on Thursday, the ZP President said that the civil work and electricity connection for the projects undertaken in draught affected areas and also in other places should be completed without delay. The people and cattle should not suffer during the summer, she said.

There are complaints against Mescom of delaying in providing electricity connection to the drinking water projects. It seems that there is lack of coordination between Mescom and Zilla Panchayat Engineering Department officials, she pointed out. DCC Bank should not discriminate in sanctioning crop loan. To provide the benefit to all, different loan systems should be charted out for Malnad and Plain regions. 

The ZP President ordered to take stringent action against the Minor Irrigation Department officers who were absent for the meeting. She also directed Women and Child Welfare Department officers to reach the target. Speaking on the distribution of ration cards in the district, she directed the officials to open Aadhar registration centres at every hobli centres, as the government has decided to transfer the subsidy amount directly to the account of the LPG customer.
   ZP CEO P B Karunakar, Industry and Agriculture Standing Committee President M S Niranjan were also present.
