The vehicle will traverse through 20 gram panchayats in all five taluks  as part of its initiative. The vehicle was flagged off by Zilla Panchayat Vice President Satish Kumpala.

As part of the initiative pamphlets will be distributed to people disseminating information on need for rain water  harvesting, consumption of clean drinking water, construction of toilets and  systematic disposal of wastes. Artistes from Hassan also will present “Togalu Gombeyata” as part of the awareness programme.

In his inaugural address, ZP Vice President Satish Kumpala said the water scarcity faced by several villages despite receiving good rainfall every year makes it inevitable to sensitize people on water conservation methods.

 PI Sreevidya, ZP CEO also spoke on the occasion.
