Farmers protest, lay siege to CNNL office – The Hindu

The Irrigation Department has decided to discharge water to canals from July 28. However, the farmers have already prepared their lands for sowing seeds and raising paddy nurseries. The department should immediately discharge Cauvery waters to Visvesvaraya, Chikka Devaraya Sagar (CDS), Virija, Devaraya, Varuna (D. Devaraj Urs) and other canals, they demanded.Standing crops and paddy nurseries at several hundreds of villages are on the verge of withering owing to the non-release of water, and it would cause a huge financial loss, they pointed out.
