    Over 400 farmers leave for Delhi to protest over Mahadayi water dispute

    The agitated farmers said, 'We'll meet the President on 30th & tell him if we don't get water then we must be permitted to give up our lives'.

    Karnataka wants 7.56 tmcft water from the Mahadayi river for the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project. This will help in augmenting the drinking water supply to Hubballi-Dharwad and districts of Belagavi and Gadag.

    The farmers had demanded the PMs intervention in the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project by bringing a compromise between Goa and Maharashtra, so that the state of Karnataka can get its share.

    Earlier, Pro-Kannada organisations had called for a state-wide bandh in Karanataka on January 25.

    Various pro-Kannada organisations led by the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike and Vatal Nagaraj, leader of Kannada Chalavali Vatal Paksha (KCVP) participated in the bandh all over the state. They claim around 2,000 pro-Kannada outfits have backed this bandh call.
