Jaladhare programme has been conducted in 180 assembly constituencies. The 15 GangaRathas that have traversed successfully and have collected the Sacred water from the main rivers of the state. Kumaraswamy has informed that this water has been collected in a Kalasha which will be worshipped during the rally.

Goal of Jaladhare
The programme has been organised to obtain blessings of Goddess Ganga for effective and efficient utilisation of water in our state. HDK has said that if the citizens vote for an independent government in the rally, resolution shall be made regarding the irrigation projects to be undertaken by the party.

“Both Congress and BJP have been unjust to the state regarding irrigation works. In the past 75 years, both parties have cheated the people. I requested the government to convert Upper Krishna project to a national project. Even Yettinahole and Mahadayi projects are not receiving favourable response. They are not implemented and being postponed by giving excuses. State resources are being misused.
Nothing is impossible for the government in our state. We must decide to utilise river water efficiently. If our party comes to absolute majority in the state, we shall act to utilise all river water efficiently”, he assured.

“Governments have not considered water problems seriously. If this continues, people of the city will face drinking water problems in future. Revival of Arkavathy river has been stopped. Several lakes and Rajakaluve have been encroached. All this has to be rectified. From the past 2-3 years, both national parties have discussed this lightly. This programme is to give them a response ” , he said.

Quote:
Janatha Jaladhare programme is special. Not only will various irrigation projects, which have been consigned to memory, be implemented but even projects, with a vision to ensure no water problems for the next hundred years, shall be designed.
