Team of officials are in a village near the border with Karnataka as there were reports that water was being diverted from here The Goa government has sent a team of officials to a village near the border with Karnataka amid media reports that its neighbouring state is diverting water from the Mahadayi river. Mahadayi river riparian states Karnataka and Goa, besides Maharashtra, have been locked in a bitter dispute over sharing of its water.

Parrikar had last week said that his government would not allow the expansion of coal handling at Mormugao Port Trust (MPT). The Central government has formed a tribunal to look into the river-sharing issue between Goa and Karnataka.

Patil said the latest statement of Parrikar that Goa will fight the issue in Tribunal, after writing a letter to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Karnataka unit President B S Yeddyurappa that Goa was willing to share water for drinking goal, will not fit to the stature of a person who holds a high post as a Chief Minister of a State in the federal set up. A few weeks ago, Yeddyurappa had claimed that Goa CM Parrikar had expressed his willingness to release water from the Mahadayi for parched north Karnataka but the Goa BJP later dismissed such claims.

Goa chief minister, Manohar Parrikar's categorical statement that Goa was not in favour of any out-of-court settlement on the Mahadayi issue came under serious attack from politicians from the Gadag district where the Mahadayi agitation is on.
