Indira Gandhi

Panaji: Former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi’s intervention in 1971, which had led to the resolution of the Cauvery water dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, could have been a model to emulate in order to amicably resolve the ongoing Mhadei interstate water dispute, AICC secretary in-charge of Goa Dinesh Gundu Rao said on Saturday.

Rao said Prime Minister Narendra Modi could have played the role of mediator in the river water sharing dispute between Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra, to resolve the issue faster and amicably.

“The other mechanism would have been the Prime Minister calling everyone and resolving the problem, if he has the capacity to do it. He did not do it,” Rao said.

At present, all three states have approached the Supreme Court to appeal against the provisions of the award given by a central government tribunal last in 2018.

Rao also cited former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi’s intervention in 1971, which he said had led to the resolution between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka over the waters of the Mhadei river. “Indira Gandhi had settled the matter between the states,” Rao said.

The former state president of the Karnataka Congress party also said that when it comes to a sensitive and important issue like inter-state river water sharing, each state had to press for the rights of its people and political party affiliations should take a backseat. “Each state will have to fight for its own rights,” Rao said.

Mhadei, also known as the Mandovi river in Goa and Mahadayi in Karnataka, is considered a lifeline for the northern parts of Goa. It originates in Karnataka and meets the Arabian Sea in Panaji in Goa, while briefly flowing through Maharashtra.

While the river runs 28.8 km in Karnataka, it is over 50 km in length in the state Goa.

Goa and Karnataka are battling out a two decade-long dispute over the sharing of the Mhadei waters.

Noida (UP), November: Hundreds of western Uttar Pradesh farmers on Friday headed to the national capital in response to a “Delhi Chalo” call to protest against the three central farm laws.

On a Bharatiya Kisan Union call to join the protest in Delhi, the farmers belonging to Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Baghpat, Gautam Buddh Nagar and other western UP districts reached the Eastern Peripheral Expressway in Greater Noida on Friday afternoon, when they were stopped by the police.

Shortly later, they left the Peripheral Expressway as the announcement came that the protestors have been allowed to march to Delhi.

“We have started our onward march. But our route to Delhi is yet to be decided by our union leaders. We may take the UP Gate route (via Ghaziabad) or the Kalindi Kunj route (via Noida),” BKU’s UP unit spokesperson Pawan Khatana told PTI.

The BKU has lent its support to the “Dilli Chalo” call of Punjab and Haryana farmers protesting against the new farm laws, he said.

“These laws are anti-farmer and should be taken back or changed. There should be a new law on minimum support price of crops to benefit farmers,” Khatana told PTI.

Gautam Buddh Nagar’s Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Love Kumar said the protest was peaceful and the security was stepped up to ensure that the situation does not aggravate.

“The situation at the expressway is peaceful and under control. There has been no violence or untoward situation. The police are making efforts to ensure there is no law and order situation,” Kumar said.

Farmers have been protesting against the Centre’s farm laws fearing that they would lead to the dismantling of the minimum support price mechanism, leaving them at the “mercy” of big corporates.

They have been demanding the repeal of the new laws.
