Payaswini river flooding becomes a political issue rsk mrq Pipa News
Kodagu district BJP media chief Subrahmanya Upadhyaya said 60 families had benefited from the Kindi dam. If someone had a medical condition, there were situations where a stick was attached to a chair and patients had to sit on it and cross the stream. Therefore, it is said that along with the bridge, the Kindi dam was built so that there is no problem of drinking water during the summer.
The incitement work of the opposition people
But Subrahmanya Upadhyay complained that opposition parties are trying to trick people there into saying that floods are being created by the Kindi dam itself.
People here had never heard of the Kindi dam
Congress leader Suresh, who responded to this BJP allegation, held a press conference on Saturday and no one from that party had demanded the Kindi roadblock. All we asked was to build a bridge. But he alleged that today all the families here have been put in trouble by building the Kindi dam and providing water to 75 acres.
Kindi dam block
An egg was thrown at the car of opposition leader Siddaramaiah (former CM Siddaramaiah) who came to see the problem. They said that we did not demand the Kindi roadblock.

Misinformation to Minister Madhuswamy
During the Congress government, the construction of the bridge was approved for Rs 30 lakh. But when the BJP government arrived, this bridge was replaced by the Kindi dam.
This is a complete inconvenience for people in this part. Even KG Bopaiah knows this but only his followers gave false information to Minister Madhuswamy, who came to the district saying that Kindi dam benefited the people, Suresh expressed his displeasure.
