Panaji:  Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday said that he has convinced Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to give any permissions for Karnataka to carry on the work on Kalsa-Bhandura project on Mahadayi pending petition in the Supreme Court.

Sawant met the Prime Minister in New Delhi on Thursday during which he raised several issues pertaining to Goa including controversial Mahadayi issue.

“The award of Mahadayi Water Dispute Tribunal has been notified by the Supreme Court. But I have urged Prime minister that the centre should not give any permissions for Karnataka to go ahead with the work on Kalsa-Bhanduri project,” Sawant said.

“I have convinced Prime minister on the issue,” he said referring to the permissions for Mahadayi.

Goa government has filed petition in the SC seeking to review the notification of the award by the tribunal.

The coastal state has also filed Special Leave Petition before the top court against the award.

Earlier during the day, after Sawant’s meeting with PM, the chief minister’s office had released the statement claiming that the latter has assured to continue support to Goa.

CMO said “CM had fruitful discussion on wide ranging issues including mining, Mahadayi, Mopa, upcoming Zilla Panchayat elections as well as various developmental projects in the state.”

“The Prime Minister has assured his continued support and cooperation for Goa’s cause,” the CMO added.

State is currently facing ban on the iron ore mining industry after Supreme Court quashed 88 leases.
