Vedika PadayatraMangaluru : Activists of Tulunada Rakshana Vedike took out a padayatra opposing the Yettinahole or Netravathi diversion project in the city on Thursday, September 3.

The vedike alleged that the government was diverting the Nethravathi on the guise of Yettinahole, a tributary of the Nethravathi, diversion project. It said the government claim that it would divert only water collected during rainy season was a “blatant lie”.

The vedike said the government took 35 years to complete the Varahi project in Udupi district which resulted in the escalation of the cost from Rs. 50 crore to Rs. 500 crore. On the other hand, Kalasa-Banduri project had not been completed. The Yettinahole project appeared like another such project.
