Locals while informing about the breach blamed the sub-standard construction work for the rupture. They also alleged that frequent incidents of the canal caving in during monsoon has keep them to their toes as they fear it would breach within the village and that would cause irreparable loss to them
But at the same time the villagers need the water to irrigate their paddy fields.
They therefore called on the Government to evaluate the safety of the canal and ensure that it serves what it is meant to do and does not threaten the villages located along it.
