The Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project (SKDRDP), which has been providing drinking water in eight villages in the State, is planning to provide pure drinking water in 50 villages in Karnataka.

Dr L.H. Manjunath, Executive Director of the Dharmasthala-based NGO, said drought-affected, backward villages in its area of operation would be selected for the programme called ‘Shudhdh Ganga’ which is being run in eight villages in Gadag, Dharwad, Tumkur and Chikmagalur districts.

Explaining this, Dr Manjunath said 50 villages badly affected by fluoride content in water would get pure drinking water. The SKDRDP would provide water to these villages by setting up reverse osmosis units in them.
