Dharwad, DHNS: A team of BJP?leaders from the state which met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in Mumbai recently, ahead of the October 21 meeting on sharing the Mahadayi river waters, has briefed him on the ground reality in north Karnataka, according to senior BJP?leader Jagadish Shettar.

The drinking water situation in north Karnataka has also been brought to his notice.

Expectations are high as the chief ministers of the three riparian states of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa meet in Mumbai on October 21 to discuss the Mahadayi river-linking project, said Shettar, who was among the BJP?leaders who met Fadnavis.

Karnataka BJP leaders have taken the BJP-led governments in Goa and Maharashtra into confidence and arranged this meeting.

However, the state Congress leaders have so far not taken up the issue with their partymen in Goa and Maharashtra. The Congress is in the opposition in the two states, Shettar stated.

When there was a BJP government in the state, Rs 100 crore was released for construction of Kalasa-Banduri naala.

However, the Congress has confined itself to making promises. The Congress government has not taken any concrete steps to make the project a reality, he said.

Relief works needed

Shettar, who is leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly, said more than 100 taluks in?state were reeling under severe drought and the need of the hour was to launch drought-relief works on a war-footing.

The government need not wait for funds from Centre. Instead, it can take up urgent works such as drinking water supply, fodder management and providing employment to rural masses, he added.
