Kundapur, Dec 3: “As promised earlier water is not released to Varahi canal on December 1. Farmers are not informed about the date of water release also. Water should be released to Varahi canl immediately,” urged Kanmakki Hariprasad Shetty, block Congress president of the taluk.

Hariprasad further said,”Officials of the irrigation department assured in the presence of minister and DC to release water in Varahi canal as the farmers need the same in the first week of December for their second crop of the year. It is really painful that innocent farmers have to literally beg the irrigation department officials to release water every year.

“It is usual for the canal to get damaged during monsoon every year. It is the responsibility of the irrigation department to get it repaired on time. Farmers on the left bank of Varahi canal have planted thousands of acres of arecanut plantation on the assurance of getting water from Varahi canal. If water is not released in the month of December on the lame excuse of getting the canal repaired, the farmers will face shortage of water.

“Concerned officials and district administration should release the water immediately into Varahi canal without giving any lame excuse and also inform the farmers about the date of releasing water.”
