Goa decides against talks on Mahadayi
Advertisement
#1
PANAJI: The Goa Cabinet has decided not to hold negotiations with the Karnataka Government on sharing of Mahadayi waters, preferring instead to wait for the newly constituted Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal to resolve the contentious inter-State issue.

The matter came up before the Cabinet in view of the recent statements by Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa that he would hold talks with his Goa counterpart. “There is no harm in holding talks with Karnataka, but no negotiations over sharing Mahadayi water,” an official of the Goa Water Resource Ministry said after the Cabinet decision.

The official also referred to the Goa Government’s unhappiness over continued work by the Karnataka Government at Kankumbi to divert the Kalasa nala towards the Malaprabha basin despite an assurance by it to the Supreme Court not to carry out the work.

Goa has repeatedly conveyed to Karnataka and the Centre its opposition to water diversion of any kind or sharing of Mahadayi waters as it would lead to the drying up of Goa’s lifeline, Mandovi (as the river is called in Goa), said the official.

There can be channels of water driven to Karnataka too but will require huge investment..
