I have been personally been monitoring the proceedings and we have demonstrated our commitment to the interests of Goemkars and our courage to stand up for it.We will study the decision and take the next steps.”

Interestingly Goa Forward Minister who is also the Minister for Water Resources in the Goa government last year stated that not a drop of water from Goa will be shared with the neighbor Karnataka. Today, its President claims that it was its Minister that was in the forefront of its struggle in a verdict that makes it imperative for Goa to share water with its neighbor Karnataka.
