He inspected the check dam works at Kadumane, Aluvalli, Kadagaravalli and Kesaganahalli.

"It is not possible to supply water on even an experimental basis by December-end, as the works are progressing at a snail's pace. While the residents have pinned high hopes on the project, the state government is neglecting it," Kumaraswamy said. The government lacks clarity on the project. About 60% of the pipeline work is yet to be completed and the compensation for the land ...
