Sadhguru calls to end Mekedatu controversy, asks for a joint effort to save Cauvery

 

 

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev asked the governments of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to set aside all the disputes regarding the Mekedatu project and resolve it to give preference to save Cauvery rive.


“Instead of discussing how much water one state gets, they should work together as Cauvery River is being neglected,” Sadhguru said while addressing the media. 

 

“I was at KRS dam and the water was brown. Is the government waiting for it to turn red? It is brown because the mountains in Coorg are melting? (landslides). This is an alarm bell and the government should address it now. Rivers, wells and lakes are not sources of water, monsoon is. They help in storing water but our idea of water storage is dams, due to which more of these are being planned,” he added. 

 

He said the rich lands of Coorg and Malnad should not flow down with water, the water should sink into the soil. “However, that is not happening because of too much development,” he said. “Under the Cauvery Calling project, saplings will be planted with the help of 890 volunteers on the ground, 1,785 gram panchayats along with the nine Cauvery basin districts in Karnataka”, he added.

 

Sadhguru said with the plantation the issue of soil restoration will be dealt with and the organic component in the soil will also increase.
