No more talks with government: Hazare

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Ralegan Siddhi, Accusing the government of conspiring to split his team, Anna Hazare today said he will not hold talks with government any more on Lokpal issue, an announcement that came in the wake of leak of reports of his meeting with law minister Salman Khurshid recently. Breaking his silence on the meeting with Khurshid on June 23 near Pune, he said the minister had asked him to keep the meeting secret and he agreed. Khurshid had also asked him not to participate in the proposed fast in Delhi. Addressing a press conference here, he released a letter he has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in which he denied the claim of minister of state in PMO V Narayanasamy that he was helping the government on evolving a consensus on Lokpal. When Salman Khurshid told me that the government will take a decision on the issue before July 25 (when Team Anna plans to go on fast), it clearly means that differences crop up in the team before the agitation so that I am not part of the protest. After coming to know about your government`s conspiracy, I do not wish to talk to any minister or any

No Bhakra dam water for rain-starved North

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Chandigarh, With the water level in Bhakra and Pong reservoirs at worrisome low levels, the Bhakra Beas Management Board has reduced water release by 10% to partnering states, including Punjab and Haryana, where sowing of paddy has already been hit due to deficient rains. The decision for the reduction in water supply to partnering states was taken in a meeting on Tuesday and it would mean that farmers of the two states would get less water for irrigation for their crops in the ongoing kharif sowing season. BBMB releases over 40,000 cusecs of water per day from Bhakra and Pong reservoirs to the partnering states for irrigation purposes. A total of 30.88 lakh hectares and 29 lakh hectares of land in Punjab and Haryana, respectively, are under the irrigation system. With rain remaining deficient in the northern region, the water level in Bhakra and Pong reservoirs has gone down, forcing BBMB to reduce water outflow in order to raise water level in these dams. Level of water in Bhakra dam on Wednesday stood at 1,551.63 ft, 60 ft lower than what the level was on the corresponding day last year.
