Mysuru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday November 2 has offered ‘bagina’ to Kabini Reservoir at Beechanahalli in H D Kote of the District after offering the traditional puja.
The Kabini Reservoir was reportedly filled to maximum level two months back. Water at KRS Reservoir reached its maximum height recently.
Speaking to the media persons Chief Minister said, “All the reservoirs in the State are full. Offering bagina to reservoirs is a happy occasion. More than us, we want the farmers to be happy. I had offered bagina while I was the Irrigation Minister. There is a strong demand to develop Kabini Reservoir on the lines of KRS Gardens. We will give it a thought,” he said.
On the by-election results, Bommai said, “We expected a strong fight in Hanagal and it has always been the case. It is a tough constituency. By-elections are no yardstick to judge a political party. There can’t be any discussion in this regard.”
On the demand for Padmashree to Puneeth Rajkumar, who passed away in Bengaluru last week, the Chief Minister said, “We have high regards for him. Siddaramaiah is free to put forward his proposal. There is a proper procedure for everything. Puneeth Rajkumar deserves any award.”
Ministers Govind Karajol, S. T. Somashekar, MLAs Anil Chikkamadu and N. Mahesh and others accompanied CM Bommai.
