Goa minister uses expletive, says river water being diverted

Speaking to news persons, Paliencar said that despite a stay order, Karnataka was carrying out civil work which would be brought to the notice of the Mahadayi River Water Sharing Tribunal.

"Reacting to the abuses hurled by a minister in the BJP-led government of Goa at people of Karnataka, Congress MLC Rizwan Arshad tweeted, "* Modi insulted Kannadigas saying there is no development in Karnataka!

"I told reporters in Karnataka that their government is doing a dirty thing, by violating court orders".

Goa Water Resources Department Minister Vinod Palyekar had sent a team for the inspection of the "fresh works" allegedly being carried out at Kankumbi by Karnataka last Friday. It originates in Karnataka and meets the Arabian Sea in Panaji in Goa, while briefly flowing through Maharashtra.

The river course is 28.8km in Karnataka, and over 50km in Goa.

Two days after a team of officials from Goa state visited the Kalasa-Banduri project site, Goa Irrigation minister Vinoda Paliencar visited the place near Kanakumbi village in Khanapur taluk on Saturday.

"The violations are happening at Kankumbi despite the SC ruling".

Parrikar's letter had evoked strong criticism from Opposition ranks.

Using an expletive for the people of Karnataka, Goa Water Minister Vinod Palienkar on Saturday accused the neighbouring state of stopping the flow of water in Mahadeyi river, which comes to Goa, and diverting it towards Karnataka. "Goa government will not tolerate", Palyekar said.

"Mhadei (another spelling for Mahadayi) is our identity and we will not allow Karnataka to destroy our identity".

The minister stated that a team of WRD officials will monitor the situation at Kalsa canal every week while also evidence of the violation has been recorded by the Goa team to submit to the Tribunal during the next hearing slated on February 6. Parrikar had recently written to the BJP state unit chief of election-bound Karnataka, stating that Goa will not oppose "in principle" sharing water with Karnataka for drinking purposes. Nevertheless, we have collected evidence of their violation which will be submitted to the Tribunal.

Chief Secretary Dharmendra Sharma has also written to his counterpart asking the Karnataka government to stop the work immediately.

The politically-sensitive Mahadayi issue is crucial mainly in north Karnataka.
