Panaji: The people of Goa are completely betrayed and let down by the BJP Government on Mhadei issue, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat said.
“It is more than evident that both Central and State Governments have shown partisan approach towards Karnataka. How can a notification be issued just hours after high level delegation meets Union Water Resource Minister? The Government has succumbed to pressure tactics,” he questioned.
Kamat said w hile listening to high assurances of Goa Chief Minister on one side & on the other side action of Jal Shakti Ministry to notify Mhadei Water Dispute Trubunal Award, Goa is left “High & Dry”. This is complete betrayal of Goa.
“The needle of suspicion of compromising the interest of Goa clearly points towards Goa Government, going by its actions in last few months.”
“The Government refused one day assembly session, they did not accept our suggestion to take the all party delegation to the Prime Minister and also disallowed the Adjournment Motion moved by the United Opposition on Mhadei. The government certainly wanted to hide facts coming out which would have caused them embarassment. Just a day before the Chief Minister also refused White Paper on Mhadei.”
“The government is answerable to the people of Goa. The Goans need explanation on why the lethargic approach was adopted by the Government in last six months, when alarm bells had already started ringing.”
