TN farmers worried over incomplete desilting work

The release of the Cauvery water from the Mettur dam on June 12 have left farmers in the delta districts worried as disilting work in many areas are incomplete. If the channels are not desilted, the water from Cauvery — the lifeline for the Kuruvai paddy farmers — will go to waste thus leading to inadequate watering resulting in crop losses.
