Maharashtra halts Krishna water flow to Karnataka

Maharashtra halts Krishna water flow to Karnataka

Bengaluru, May 30 (UNI) Despite the Rajapura barrage on the Krishna River in Maharashtra overflowing due to pre-monsoon rains, the river remains dry in Karnataka because the barrage gates have been closed, halting the natural flow.
This decision has aggravated villagers in Karnataka's Krishna River basin, where the drought situation is dire in Belagavi, Bagalkot, and Vijayapura.
The Belagavi and Vijayapura district administrations rely on tankers and private borewells for drinking water, while Bagalkot depends on private borewells. In 2023, 34 out of 37 talukas in these districts were declared drought-hit by the Karnataka government.
