Will fight legally and politically for Mahadayi water: Goa CM Sawant

Published on

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the coastal state will win the Mahadayi river water battle as his government is making efforts on legal, technical and political fronts and leaving no stone unturned.

Goa and Karnataka are at loggerheads over the diversion of Mahadayi water by the construction of the Karnataka dams on the tributaries of the Kalasa and Banduri rivers.

The Central Water Commission recently approved the Detailed Project Report (DPR) submitted by Karnataka for the construction of two dams, which the Goa government had raised objections to.

The Goa government has argued that Karnataka cannot divert water from the Mahadayi River as it passes through the Mahadayi Nature Reserve, which is located downstream in North Goa.

“Whatever he may say, we stand by our decision. Whatever we have to do for Mahadayi, we do it legally, technically and politically. We will do whatever it takes and we are confident of winning the battle,” Sawant said on Tuesday.

He was reacting to Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s alleged statement on the Goa Assembly resolution against diversion of Mahadayi river water.
