VIJAYAPURA: Incessant rain in Maharashtra has resulted in heavy water flow into Bheema river, disconnecting the road links of a few villages in Vijayapura and turning them into islands.

After the heavy inflow to the Ujayni water reservoir of Maharashtra, the authorities released 20,000 tmcft, swelling Bheema river. Following this, the old Tarapur village near Almel lost connectivity with the neighbouring villages.

Due to the overflow of the river, the nearby agricultural lands have been flooded and the electric water motors that were installed on the bank of the river have been washed away. The bridge that connects Tarapur village has also submerged and people are afraid of water coming to their village.

    Ujani dam was getting filled consistently for days..there were no flash floods in Bhima rivet..cant Karnataka govt take the necessary action once ujani dam is about to get filled up..Tarapur seems to be getting effected all the time..it is not just the flood alert..check list(nforming villages about removing motors) has to be ready .. A poor man's life or property has no value in India.
