Shiv Sena in Goa condemned the reported statement of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President Amit Shah that Mhadei water issue will be resolved if his party comes to power.
In a statement to the media, Shiv Sena Goa Spokesperson Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik said, “The statement is completely against the wishes of Goans and Shah seems to have taken us for granted.
We have to know who has given authority to Shah, who belongs to Gujarat, to decide about our water. When Mhadei Water Dispute Tribunal is already hearing the petition, how can Shah act like a ‘kangaroo court’ and give his verdict.”
“We are strongly against diversion of Mhadei water as it would adversely affect our life in Goa,” Naik stated.
