Panaji: Even as the deadline of ten days given by Union Minister Prakash Javadekar to respond to the appeal by Goa government to withdraw letter given to Karnataka on Mahadayi water diversion issue expired on Thursday, State Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Friday said that the minister would respond in next one or two days.

 “I have spoken to Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar, this morning.  He told me that the meeting of one of the committees is pending. He has assured me to let me know in one or two days,” the chief minister told reporters in Panaji on Friday.

He said that one can’t take literal meaning of ten days in such matters. “We are following up the matter with centre and we are sure that central government will consider our demand,” he said.

Goa and Karnataka are fighting two decade long battle over the diversion of Mahadayi river water.

An all-party delegation led by Sawant had met Javadekar in New Delhi on November 4, 2019 during which they were assured by the latter to respond back within ten days.

Goa was protesting against the letter issued by Union Environment ministry to Karnataka this month clarifying that no Environment Clearance was required for the project on Mahadayi river planned by them.
