Margao: At the backdrop of Central government notifying Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal’s award, Goa Forward Party Chief Vijai Sardesai blamed chief minister Pramod Sawant for “compromising on the issue.”
He also said that CM was trying to fool, all the Goans, all the time.
Sardesai said that Jal Shakti ministry has given a gift to Karnataka CM B S Yediyurappa in the form of Mahadayi on his 78th birthday.
“The order has already been notified. It is seen clear cut that yesterday it was 78th birthday of Yediyurappa. He has been gifted it as a birthday gift. Our river has been gifted to Karnataka at the cost of Goa. It is a gift of jal shakti ministry,” he reacted.
Referring to the earlier demand of united opposition asking Goa government to furnish white paper on Mahadayi, Sardesai said that now the time has come to ask for x-ray. “The patient is dead.. we are on issue of postmortem. It is death by connaivance and death by negligence. The notified gazette has said that senior counsel Arvind P Datar representing Goa did not oppose.”
He said that the compromise on Mahadayi is a part of a deal. “We need to find out what is the deal. But the fact of the matter is that CM ha been telling lies.
You can fool some of the people some of the time, you can’t fool all the people, all the time. He is attempting to fool all the people, all the time.”
“In the bargain, CM has sold Goa. This is clear cut example of selling Goa,” he said.
“I condemn Goa government which stands totally exposed,” he added.
