K'taka CM agrees for all-party delegation on Mahadayi waters

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Apr 6 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today agreed to lead an all-party delegation to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to seek release of 7.56 TMC FT of water by Goa from Mahadayi river for drinking water purposes.

Replying to a query raised by Leader of the Opposition N Dharam Singh on the issue, he said if the House so desired, he was willing to lead a delegation to the Prime Minister during the next few days and seek release of water from Goa on the basis of Karnataka releasing five TMC FT of Krishna waters to Tamil Nadu for drinking water requirement.

Earlier, Mr Kumaraswamy made a statement on the recent Chief Ministers' meeting held in New Delhi on the Mahadayi issue, in which Goa flatly refused to release additional water and stalled the project of laying a canal from Mahadayi river to meet the drinking water requirements of the twin cities of Hubli-Dharwad and Belgaum.

He said the neigbouring State was firm on its decision. The Union Water Resources Minister, however, had indicated that he would talk to the Goa Chief Minsiter again and reply to Karnataka within the next 15 days.
