Believe it or not: Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah tours dry zone


A controversy has erupted over two water tankers being emptied to prevent dust from rising from a road ahead of CM Siddaramaiah's programme at Bilagi in the district during his ongoing visit of drought-hit areas.

The two tankers containing about 5000 litres of water were emptied before Siddaramaiah was to garland the statue of saint Kanakadasa as the road where it is located was dusty. Siddaramaiah was scheduled to visit Badagandi village in Bilagi taluk as part of his current state wide tour of the areas reeling under drought. "I will ask the Deputy Commissioner to look into it," said Siddaramaiah when asked by reporters about the incident yesterday.
