Mangaluru, Dec 29, 2017: Addressing media on Dec 28, Thursday, H.D. Kumaraswamy, president, State unit of the Janata Dal (Secular), alleged that the State government’s Yettinahole Integrated Drinking Water Project is a “money looting programme”.
He said that while laying the foundation stone for the project in 2014 the government has announced that Kolar and Chickaballapur would get the water in a year.
“But now water has not even reached Sakleshpur,” he said adding that people in the two districts too have now realised that they would not get water from the project.
To a question on if elected to power whether his party would scrap the project, Mr. Kumaraswamy did not make the stand clear. He said that any project of the government should help people.
