Udupi, May 14: Prayers were offered at temples, a mosque and a church seeking rain to avert drinking water crisis on Friday by Uudpi MLA Pramod Madhwaraj. With water level fast receding at the Baje Dam across the Swarna and no rainfall in the catchment area, Pramod seeked divine intervention.

The water level in the dam, which was 2.17 metres on Thursday, was down to 2.15 metres on Friday. This, despite the fact that the city had received brief spells of rainfall on May 11 and 12.

Municipal councillors and officials, led by MLA Pramod Madhwaraj, offered prayers to propitiate the rain god. The team first visited the Jamia Masjid. The prayers were offered by Maulana Rashid Ahmed Nadvi, Khatib, at the mosque.

After the mosque, the team visited the Chandramouleshwara Temple, Ananteshwara Temple and Krishna Mutt/Temple. Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Pejawar Mutt joined the team in their prayers.

The team then went to the Mother of Sorrows Church to offer prayers. Most Rev. Dr. Gerald Isaac Lobo, Bishop of Udupi Catholic Diocese was also present.
