Capt. Ganesh Karnik, MLC who addressed the press meet  urged the government to shelve the project before it proves to be an utter failure. Stating that the project was nothing but a waste of public funds. Describing the project as unscientific, he said only those who implement the project would benefit but not  people of Kolar and other so called beneficiary districts.

Fr. J B Crasta, Parish Priest of Rosario Church  cited the example of Varahi Project which had cost a lot on the state exchequer but failed to yield desired results. The same may be the fate of the Yettinahole project, he feared.

MG Hegde, social activist  who also spoke on the occasion said there is no reason to believe the government statement that 24 TMC ft of water was available at Yettinahole during monsoon. DK District is already facing water problem and providing water to some other district in such a situation is unfeasible, he added.

He was also highly critical of the Deputy Director of Women and Child Welfare Department who reportedly  had directed the Anganavadi staff not to take part in the protest.

Purushottam Chitrapur, Deputy Mayor, PV Mohan, AICC Member and many others were present on the occasion.
