Porvorim: Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte on Monday accused chief minister Pramod Sawant of making his ego bigger than the cause of Mahadayi.
“Mahadayi has been made political issue by the ruling party. We have always said that the issue should be handled apolitical but indecisiveness and weak leadership is being witnessed the way Pramod Sawant performs on daily basis,” Khaunte said.
“As far as Mahadayi is concerned, full legal team has failed. Without opposing anything they have let it go,” he said.
“It is black day. Cm shold resign, the man who is mahadayi bachao andolan worker is not ready to take up the issue,” Khaunte commented.
“They should have defended the topic. Rather than defending it, they have bowed down to the requirement of centre,” he said.
“Everyone knows that Karnataka minister and Sawant has good relation with Javadekar. The budget of Karnataka will be announced now and there will be stress on Kalsa-Bhanduri and other projects.”
“Whatever we are trying to defend is not what has gone wrong to Mahadayi, but what has gone wrong to them. Ego of this government is bigger than Mahadayi because they are trying to justify,” he said.
“Cm should have respectfully admitted the mistake. He is adamant. He is loosening our strings and bows down to the requirement of centre.”
