Revoke decision to raise height of Alamatti dam, Shetty urges K'taka CM

Kolhapur, Sep 26 (UNI) Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana national president Raju Shetty on Sunday met Karnataka Chief Minister Basavraj Bommai and demanded to revoke his government's decision to raise the height of Alamatti dam, which caused severe floods in the border districts of Kolhapur, Sangli and Belgaum.
He met Mr Bommai this morning at the government's guest house in Belgaum district and asked him not to raise the height of Alamatti dam any further.
Mr Shetty told the Karnataka Chief Minister that this year's floods were more severe than that of 2005, 2006 and 2019, and suggested to construct arches on both sides of the rivers of Krishna, Dudhganga, Vedganga and Hiranyakeshi for easy and smooth flow of flood waters.
