The new Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has discussed the state’s law and order with senior officials and city police commissioner Alok kumar has tightened the night’s patrol and has quietly landed himself.
On the one hand, Alok Kumar, accompanied by subordinate officers, was on Saturday night from 11 am to 3 pm, in order to alert the accused, rowdy, and to keep the policemen alert. More than 500 suspects have been interrogated and over 500 vehicles have been seized.
It was notable that officers of all levels ranged from the commissioner to the general public. Along with the police personnel, the traffic department staff also provided Saath. 8 DCPs, two additional commissioners, two DCPs of the crime branch, five ACPs, more than 150 inspectors, the poor, and traffic police personnel were on duty. More than 100 NOCs have been set up in various police stations, officials said.
The accused, who hide their heads in the daytime, go into the operation only at night and commit acts of extortion and robbery. In recent times, acts of assault and robbery have been reported in recent times. So to make night patrol more effective and to reassure the public that there are police everywhere, all the senior officers and night duty personnel were given some instructions. Such patrols will continue in the next few days, officials said.
Rehabilitation of wells is important
Environmental expert and water conservation expert S. Vishwanath said the focus should be on rehabilitation of wells that had previously existed to address the water problem in the city.
He was speaking on Sunday at the Bangalore Metropolitan Charitable Endowment Lecture ‘Bangalore Lakes and Water Management Program’ organized by the Mythic Society.
“The wells quenched drinking water before the city’s piped water supply system was installed. Impact wells were drilled by drilling borewells. There are about ten thousand wells in the city. Most of these are useless, and if scientifically revived, most of the water will be spilled. The well, which had been neglected in the premises of the Yelhanka railway factory, is now being used for rainwater harvesting water. We need to raise awareness about this, ‘
” groundwater system is widely available all over India. Temple, Kalyani and community wells are well supported. When Western technology entered the country, the groundwater was drained and the water drained. This is a drought-stricken environment. There is an urgent need to pursue water literacy without making this mistake, ”explained Vishwanath.
Agriculture requires water discipline:
Dr MG Chandrakant, director of the Institute for Social and Economic Change Studies, said, “The green revolution in the country has helped to achieve self-reliance in food production as well as exploiting groundwater. Instead of paddy, sugarcane crop which requires more water, less water crops should be preferred. There is a need to adopt discipline for compulsory water use in agriculture, ”he said.
Each river has its own specific flow and ecological range. If one river is connected to another, the diversity of life is threatened. The man is sacrificing rivers to fulfill his desires. Dr Chandrakant asserted that instead of large projects like the river bridge project, the emphasis should be on the management of river water.
Preventing leakage in Kaveri water supply, reduction in borewells and adoption of rainwater harvesting can prevent Bangalore from bringing water to Lingammakki.
