Tension in Narayanpur

Special Correspondent

GULBARGA: An uneasy calm prevailed over the areas surrounding the Narayanpur Dam in Surpur taluk. The presence of armed police in large numbers around the reservoir prevented attempts by farmers to carry out their threat of forcibly opening of the crest gates to release water into the Narayanpur Canal.

The farmers had issued a warning to the State Government that they would forcibly open the gates of the dam if the Government fails to concede their demand for the release of water into the canal to save the standing crops in the command areas.

The Narayanpur Dam was fortified with additional police force and the district administration imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code on Wednesday to prevent farmers from making any attempt to move near the Narayanpur reservoir.

However, more than 1,000 farmers who came to Narayanpur protested against what they referred to as the indifference of the State Government to the problems of the farmers.
