Karwar: State minor irrigation and law minister J C Madhu Swamy has slammed the officials for not providing accurate information on government-initiated projects.

The minister had chaired a review meeting of minor irrigation department on Thursday, December 26 at the Zilla Panchayat office.

Irked by the officials’ unpreparedness to submit reports and also noting the irresponsibility and loopholes in the implementation of the minor irrigation projects, Madhu Swamy directed the Superintendent Engineer to conduct a probe and submit a report to the government within a week.

Madhu Swamy also directed Secretary of the Department of Water Resources C Mruthyunjaya Swamy to take stringent action against the engineer who was not able to explain about the work done.

MLAs Dinakar Shetty and Roopali Naik, Deputy Commissioner Dr Harishkumar K and Chief Engineer G T Suresh were present.
