Special prayers held for bountiful rain


Udupi: Worried over acute water scarcity in the city due to less rainfall, people of different faiths offered special prayers to propitiate rain god here on Friday.

Despite the city having received rainfall on May 11 and 12, the water level in the Baje Dam across the Swarna came down to 2.15 metres on Friday from 2.17 metres on Thursday.

Municipal councillors and officials, led by MLA Pramod Madhwaraj, offered prayers to propitiate the rain god at the Jamia Masjid first, where the prayers were offered by Maulana Rashid Ahmed Nadvi, Khatib, at the mosque. And then they moved to the Chandramouleshwara Temple, Ananteshwara Temple and Krishna Mutt/Temple. They also visited the Mother of Sorrows Church to offer prayers.
Addressing the press persons, the MLA said that for the past three years the city has not faced any kind of drinking water scarcity, but if water in the Baje Dam receded from the present level, the city probably might suffer from water scarcity.

Other persons present during the event are president of the Udupi City Municipal Council, Meenakshi Bannanje, and vice-president Sandhya Kumari.
