Nearly 700 men, women and children took part in the walkathon that covered Noble Residency, SNN and Begur Road. 

In light of a pressing water scarcity situation on the outskirts of Bengaluru, the community organization Beautiful Begur orchestrated a 'Save Water' walkathon this Sunday.

Prakash K, the president of the group, stated, "Despite the government's  inclusion of 110 villages within the city limits to establish the  Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in 2007, the Begur area and  adjacent residential colonies continue to face severe water challenges  even after 16 years, which is a regrettable situation." 

He further added, "It is incumbent upon the government and civic bodies to ensure that fundamental necessities like water are adequately provided to all citizens."

He continued, "The walkathon serves as a form of protest against the government's failure to undertake initiatives aimed at enhancing underground water levels through measures like rainwater harvesting and other natural methods during the previous monsoon season."
