Replying to a question from P.H. Poojar (BJP), the minister said acquisition of land inundated when water was stored up to 521 metres had been completed. Acquisition of land which would be inundated when water was stored up to 525 metres would be taken up in stages, and money allotted.
When Mr. Poojar sought to know the time limit for the acquisition proposed in stages, Mr. Patil pleaded difficulty, as it was a sensitive issue. Unhappy with the Government's stand, Mr. Poojar staged a walkout.
The Minister for Women and Child Development, Motamma, informed Chowda Reddy that 40 per cent of the 1,342 vacancies of supervisors would be reserved for anganwadi workers who had passed SSLC and completed 10 years of service. Those with degrees would be given preference, she said.
Ms. Motamma said that if there were five or more vacancies of anganwadi workers in a scheme, the selection would be made by a taluk-level committee.
In reply to a question from V. Krishnappa on self-help groups, Ms. Motamma said there were 75,660 such groups by the end of May, and their savings were Rs. 73.58 crore. The Government had released Rs. 8.65 crore to 17,314 groups. Apart from that, 2,800 groups had been given Rs. 1.40 crore under the Swarna Jayanti Swarozgar Yojana, and a loan of Rs. 7.56 crore sanctioned to 3,795 groups to start business activities.
