Release water in Kalingarayan Canal

ERODE: Members of the Kalingarayan Pasana Sabhi has urged the district administration to take steps to release water in Kalingarayan Canal from July 1.

The Public Works Department is carrying out repairs and maintenance works in the canal. The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development provided a sum of Rs. 12 crore for these works.


Since the works are progressing at a snail’s pace, members of the association wanted the administration to postpone the remaining works to the next year and release water from July 1.

This would help the farmers depending on the canal take up cultivation. The members adopted a resolution to this effect at a meeting held here recently.
