Panaji: Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday accused the opposition parties of “unnecessarily politicizing the issue of dispute with Karnataka on Mahadayi river.”

Sawant told reporters in Panaji that Goa will “one hundred and ten percent win the case in the SC.”

Goa government has filed special leave petition in the Supreme Court challenging the award given by Inter State Water Dispute Tribunal on Mahadayi river.

The SC, which is hearing the SLP in its interim order, earlier this month had allowed notification of the award. The opposition parties in Goa had claimed it as defeat of the state government in protecting the river.

SC has already taken our case in Mahadayi matter on board, Sawant said adding that it is coming up for hearing this week.

Reacting to the opposition, Sawant said “those who are accusing my government of failing to protect the interest of the river are responsible for the current situation.”

“When they were in power, ask them, what they have done to save the river? They are responsible for the situation that we are currently facing,” the chief minister said.

Sawant said that cutting across political lines, the opposition parties should have supported state government on the issue.

“This is the issue of the state. This is not the issue of Pramod Sawant,” he commented.

The chief minister said that Goa will “110 per cent win the case in the SC.” “We have put up a very strong case based on evidence before the Court. Goa will win the case,” he said.
