BANGALORE: Pavagada Taluk Welfare and Cultural Organisation is holding a mammoth rally at Freedom Park on February 13 demanding drinking water facility for their taluk.
The padayatra, which kickstarted from Pavagada on February 8, is expected to reach the city on February 13.”Pavagada is a backward taluk with no basic facilities. The people are fed up with the negligent attitude of the government in addressing the serious problem of drinking water. The government will be responsible if they want their taluk to be separated from the Karnataka state,” said S K Venkata Reddy, President, Pavagada Taluk Welfare and Council Organisation.
Addressing media persons here on Saturday, he said they were unhappy about the government for not implementing ‘Ganga Yojana’, a project to provide water to remote areas of the State.
“People are forced to drink fluoride water. We no more believe in the promises made by the government, we wish to see the plans for Pavagada implemented as soon as possible”, Venkata Reddy stated.
