Talks not likely to solve Mahadayi row, says Goa CM

Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Thursday said that the Mahadayi water-sharing dispute was not likely to be resolved through talks. 

He was speaking to mediapersons after a private visit to the Satyadevata Kshetra at Gurpur near here.

Parsekar said that the Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal was formed to resolve the water-sharing row.

Goa was committed to the final verdict on the issue, he said. Parsekar likened Karnataka to an elder brother of his state. “There is no enmity between the two states. Goa has no power to face Karnataka,” he said.

He said Goa owed its existence to River Mahadayi. The river has been the lifeline for 50% of the people in the state. But for the river, Goa would have been a desert, he said.
