Mahadayi talks only after Karnataka poll: Goa BJP

Accusing the Karnataka BJP of backtrackingon its assurance to resolve the Mahadayi water sharing issue withGoa. the agitating farmers of North Karnataka today decidedto intensify their agitation.

The bandh is likely to have an impact in Gadag, Dharwad, Bagalkote, Hubballi, Bailahongala and neighbouring areas. Schools and colleges in these areas have declared a holiday as a precautionary measure in consultation with the deputy commissioners concerned. The BJP members in the state are actors. "We are sounding a note of caution to our own government: If you are going to sell out, then we would not want this ministry", said Vijay Sardesai, president of Goa Forward, an ally of BJP.

MBA secretary and a member of the National Wildlife Board Rajendra Kerkar told The Hindu that the organisation fears that Mr. Parrikar's sudden "surrender" could weaken Goa's strong case in the Mahadayi Water Dispute Tribunal. But it has remained a promise.

In the letter, the party's Goa spokesperson Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik has termed the move by Mr Parrikar on Christmas as that of being a "Bad Santa Claus" who is snatching the future of our children, which is river Mahadeyi.

After this CM Siddaramaiah has written a letter to the Goa chief minister again asking to settle the dispute at the earliest.

The party had faced criticism from environmental activists, civil society members and Opposition parties after Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar wrote to Karnataka BJP chief B.S. Yeddiyurappa to discuss the release of water from Mahadayi. On Thursday, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah called it an "election gimmick", and questioned the rationale behind a chief minister writing to his party's state leadership rather than the constitutionally elected government of the neighbouring state. This forced Parrikar to change his stand and announced he would stand by the tribunal's verdict, putting Yeddyurappa in a tightspot.

Speaking to reporters, Saravana said JD (S) State president Kumaraswamy is unwell for the last three days and could not meet the farmers. The protesters who have gathered under the banner of Karnataka Raitha Sene said though they have been holding protests for more than two years, demanding the implementation of Mahadayi project, their demands have fallen on deaf ears. Mixed response from Sandalwood The Kannada film fraternity appeared to be divided over whether to support the Kalasa-Banduri agitation in front of BJP office in Bengaluru.
