Panaji: The Water Resources Department Minister Philip Neri Rodrigues on Saturday said that the state government is still waiting for the Supreme Court to hear the contempt petition filed by it with regards to Mahadayi water dispute.

“We are still waiting for the SC to hear the contempt petition filed by us against Karnataka for going ahead with the construction of project despite case pending before the Apex Court,” Rodrigues said.

He said that the state had pleaded that the SC should have “physical hearing” of the case. “First of all, the court will decide on our application for physical hearing, before taking up the contempt petition,” the minister said.

On October 06, 2020, Goa government had filed a contempt petition before the Supreme Court against Karnataka for illegal diversion of Mahadayi river water in Malaprabha basin.

Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra have already filed three different special leave petitions before the Supreme Court challenging the order of Inter State Water Dispute Tribunal, which had decided on the share of the water.

The Special Leave Petition, which was filed in July last year, had challenged the Mahadayi Water Dispute Award in 2018, which allowed Karnataka to divert 13.42 TMC water from the river basin.
