Urging the district administration to clean the Kalingarayan canal and the Lower Bhavani Project (LBP) canal before water release, the members of Tamil Manila Congress submitted a petition to the Collector here on Monday.
The petition said that the State Government has announced release of water into Kalingarayan canal from July 19 to benefit farming community. Water release in LBP canal was yet to be announced. Both the main canals and the sub-canals were dumped with plastic waste, glass bottles and industrial waste. If the waste materials were not cleaned, it could enter the farm lands. Hence, the administration should take steps to clean the canals. Members also wanted the administration to announce water release from the Bhavani Sagar Dam so that the farmers could be prepared for the cultivation.
