Dharna for water at Haleri village

People of Chamundeshwari Colony at Haleri village in Somwarpet taluk of Kodagu staged a dharna in front of the office of the Deputy Commissioner here on Friday in protest against the “apathy” of the district administration in tackling water shortage in their colony.

Rallying under the Janapara Horata Vedike, they demanded that the district administration provide them adequate drinking water.

Their pleas fell on deaf ears, Balakrishna Rai, president of the vedike, alleged.

The protesters said that they would intensify their agitation if their demand was not fulfilled at the earliest. A memorandum was submitted to the officials here.
