KOPPAL: Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar said that the state government is committed to constructing the parallel balancing reservoir near Navali across the Tungabhadra river.

Addressing the media here on Sunday, he said, “We have written letters to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Chief Ministers (Revanth Reddy and Jagan Mohan Reddy) seeking time to discuss the project as it involves the three states. Our government is fully committed to building this balancing reservoir”.

“The Koppal district in-charge minister and MLAs of Koppal and Ballari districts have demanded construction of the balancing reservoir. The Andhra Pradesh administration hasn’t given time yet, as they may be preparing for elections. All three states will sit down and discuss the usage of excess 30 tmcft of water as it is beneficial to all three states”, Shivakumar said.

“The Chief Minister has already discussed this project in the Legislative Assembly. This issue was discussed when I was the Irrigation Minister in the past. We will take the project forward this time,” he said.

“I am very happy to be participating in the mega fair of the Gavi Siddeshwara Math. I have heard a lot about this Math and I have visited this a couple of times in the past”, the Deputy CM said.

He said that the Math is bringing in social revolution in the region. “I have come here as a representative of the government to support and encourage the good work of the Math. We are with the people of this region”, he said. (ANI)
