Questioning the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Mahadayi river water row between Karnataka and Goa, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said unless a proper solution was found to the issue nothing in Karnataka could move.
Gandhi who concluded his three day visit of six districts of Karnataka in the Bombay-karnataka region, while addressing a public meeting on Monday night sought Mr Modi to immediately convene a tripartite meeting with Chief Ministers of Goa, Maharashtra and Karnataka to find an amicable solution.
He said the NDA government headed by Modi only preached, but never practices and had been dilly dallying to waive farmers loans. On the contrary his party government in Karnataka had provided loan facility at zero per cent interest to farmers and had also waived farmers loans in cooperative institutions. BJP can never help the people as a whole, he asserted.
The Congress President also accused Modi of favouring the “super rich” and wondered why he had still not appointed a Lokpal to fight corruption.
