‘Don’t let saline water into canals’

Former Health Minister K.Srinivas on Saturday appealed to aqua farmers to avoid releasing saline water from aqua ponds into the irrigation channels.

Addressing farmers and other sections of people at Mandavalli, Mr. Srinivas reminded the aqua farmers that higher salinity levels in irrigation canals would lead to crop damage apart from polluting the drinking water ponds in villages.

Mr. Srinivas and Eluru MP M. Babu laid the foundation stone for various developmental works in Mandavalli mandal on Saturday.

The State and Central government authorities were engaged in the exercise of identification of the proposed extent of wetland for de-notification in Kolleru lake, he said.
