Government  of Goa is not serious  about  protecting the ecology of Mahadayi river area alleged  Mhadei Bachao Abhiyan (MBA) today  warning that ‘Goa’s battle will be lost’ if this approach is not changed.

The Abhiyan  has also strongly objected to the Central Government’s move to set up a single, permanent Inter-State Water Dispute Tribunal (ISWDT) by dissolving the existing Mhadei Water Dispute Tribunal (MWDT).


Central Empowered Committee (CEC) report showing the extent of ecological damage will come before the Supreme Court on April 13 informed Nirmala Sawant.    “Goa can’t hold discussion with Karnataka over Mahadayi issue when the matter is with tribunal,” MBA said .
