Chamarajanagar: Scion of erstwhile Mysuru royal family Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar on Tuesday said “It is the prerogative of the government to initiate action if the mining poses threat to KRS dam.”

Yaduveer who broke his silence on the issue for the first time in recent past, told media persons at Hangala in Gundlupet “Currently there is a debate on KRS reservoir and its safety issues due to mining. There is a need to take expert opinion in this regard.”

State government must consult experts and seek report on the status of the dam and whether mining is really posing danger to the structure of the dam. It is the priority of the government to stop both legal and illegal mining in that area, said Yaduveer.

Our ancestors have immensely contributed to build KRS dam. After independence, the royal family handed over complete maintenance of the dam to state government. They only should take experts report and initiate necessary action regarding mining, Yaduveer added.
