Bijapur: Karnataka Government has submitted a report to the Centre seeking financial assistance for desilting of Dhoni and Benni rivers in the state, Minister for Water Resources Basavaraj Bommai said on Tuesday.

The Centre has promised to consider the request, he told mediapersons after inspecting various on-going irrigation projects in the district.

He said the government has set 2012 as the deadline to complete all the projects under implementation in the Krishna River valley and initiate steps to prepare reports on projects to be taken up to utilise its water share under "B" Scheme.

The state awaited the tribunal verdict on the sharing of surplus Krishna river water, Bommai said.
