Karnataka government has cleared proposals for aquasports (river rafting, boat riding, kayaking, water skiing), trekking, rock climbing, adventure theme parks, golf course, light show, amusement park, resorts, budget hotels around the dams in Karnataka. This will not only destroy the environment, but will also further dent the scarce water resources in the state. As it is our forests and ghats are facing the danger of mining, enroachment and construction. In addition, it has cleared proposals integrated township, medical college ITES, residential and commercial complexes in Hassan and Doddanekundi industrial area. Don't we have enough of these already, most of which are lying vacant?
Can local circles take up this issue so that this is stopped. more
