Karnataka: Dam Got Damaged, Authorities Assure No Threat

  • | Tuesday | 20th July, 2021

Krishnarajasagara dam was damaged in Karnataka due to heavy rain. 

 Karnataka`s Krishnarajasagara dam in the Mandya district has been damaged, but the authorities assure that it has not affected the safety of the structure. 

A portion of the wall near the steps leading down from the dam to the renowned Brindavan Gardens has collapsed. The damage has taken place at a time when the state is receiving heavy rain.

The dam and concerns regarding its stability have been in the news of late owing to the ongoing war of words between Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambareesh and JDS leader and former CM H D Kumaraswamy.

In response, the JD(S), which holds considerable influence in the region, alleged that the mining activity began when the late Ambareesh, former MP from Mandya and Sumalatha Ambareesh`s husband, was at the helm of affairs in the district.

Hitting back, the Independent MP has dared JD(S) leaders to present evidence to support their allegations and also said that the strong reaction by JDS MLAs suggests that they are benefiting from the illegal mining.
