Panaji: Congress party in Goa on Thursday demanded that State government should call for one-day-long legislative assembly session to discuss the crucial issue of Mahadayi river.

Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat told reporters that Goa Legislative Assembly should be summoned for a day and unanimous resolution should be taken demanding that Mahadayi water should not be diverted.

“All party delegation, then should meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and seek his intervention in the matter,” Kamat said.

The issue about Mahadayi river has been revived in the State after Union Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar wrote to Karnataka on December 24 that Environment Clearance was not required for Kalsa Bhanduri project on Mahadayi river.

Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra have filed special leave petitions before Supreme Court on the award passed by Inter State Water Dispute Tribunal. Goa has also moved to the SC alleging that Karnataka has indulged in contempt of court by diverting the water even as case is pending before the apex court.

Kamat said that though the case is pending before SC,  Karnataka is exchanging letters with centre and central government is replying to them.

The Leader of Opposition said that any decision on Mahadayi should be taken only after the petitions filed before SC are disposed off.

“Whatever has to be done, should be done after SC gives its verdict,” he said.
