DYFI urges City Corporation to rejuvenate lakes

Water rationing for sustenance till summer: Mayor

The Mangaluru City Corporation has failed in managing the drinking water crisis, said CPI(M) Mangaluru South committee Secretary Sunil Kumar Bajal. He demanded the Corporation to take immediate steps to rejuvenate the lakes, government wells and to repair borewells.

Addressing mediapersons at DYFI office here on Tuesday, Bajal said that even after the bitter experience of last year, the City Corporation has not learnt any lesson.

“It has succumbed to the water tanker lobby and has neglected water management in its administration areas. The City Corporation should have rejuvenated the lakes, government wells and borewells by now. But, unfortunately, it has not done so far, which shows its ignorance,” he said.


Opposing the mismanagement of water crisis by the City Corporation, the DYFI will picket the City Corporation office at 10 am on April 13.

Water ration

“The Mangaluru City Corporation decided to go for rationing of water supply to sustain the water supply till the onset of monsoon and ensure that the Mangaluru citizens do not go without water for days unlike last summer,” said Mayor Kavitha Sanil.

To a query by mediapersons, she said that the Opposition BJP and the CPI(M) have been levelling allegations against them regarding rationing of water.

“The decision to go for rationing of water was taken after consulting all 60 corporators and MLA. In fact, even before the Corporation decided to go for rationing of water, Deputy Commissioner Dr K G Jagadeesha had asked the Commissioner to start rationing the supply of water,” the mayor explained.

There is a problem in the distribution of water at Gorigudde, Ashoknagara, Valencia areas, she added.
