Staff Correspondent

MANIPAL: K. Raghupati Bhat, MLA, said on Tuesday that action will be taken against the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) if it does not stop discharging untreated water in low-lying areas of Herga within 15 days.

Mr. Bhat told presspersons that he and District Health and Family Welfare Officer S.N. Halbhavi visited Herga on Tuesday after receiving complaints from the people.

The people had complained that water in wells had become contaminated. He found that the area belonging to Thambu Naik, a Scheduled Tribe member, had been encroached upon. Before going to Herga, he had told MAHE authorities about it, Mr. Bhat said.

The MLA said Estate Officer of MAHE Jaivittal, who reached the spot, assured him of taking action on all issues raised by him (Mr. Bhat). The MLA said that he had asked the people of Herga to inform him in 15 days if MAHE does not take action.

Mr. Halabhavi said that he had decided to visit the area along with the MLA after reports in a section of the media that untreated water was being discharged into the Swarna.
