BJP team to meet Goa CM on Monday over Mahadayi 22.9.2017 Deccan Herald - State
A delegation from the state BJP will meet Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parikkar on Monday in a bid to seek an out-of-the court settlement for the Mahadayi river water dispute. "We will meet the chief minister of Goa under the leadership of (BJP state president) B S Yeddyurappa but we are keeping the venue of the meeting under wraps as we apprehend that some vested interests may create problems," senior BJP leader Jagadish Shettar, who will be a part of the delegation, told DH. Besides state leaders, Union Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar, who was recently appointed by the party central leadership as election in-charge of Karnataka, will also be part of the delegation. Karnataka plans to divert 7.56 tmc ft of water from its Mahadayi basin contribution to the Malaprabha dam to meet the drinking water needs of the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad and the surrounding towns and villages. The plan is to channelise the diverted water through canals Kalasa and Banduri so that water could be ...

Deve Gowda targets 'Siddaramaiah Congress' 19.8.2017 deccanherald.com
JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda has accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of "reducing" the Congress party to his "fiefdom" and said senior leaders of the party were being "silenced". Minus Siddaramaiah, there is no voice of the Congress party. It's become 'Siddaramaiah Congress'. Nobody cares for senior leaders, he told journalists here on Saturday. Gowda refused to comment on income tax raids on Energy Minister D K Shivakumar and suggested that both the Congress and the BJP refrained from attacking each other as they had a "secret" understanding. Siddaramaiah hasn't spoken against BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa or the "failures" of the Central government. The BJP, in turn, is not speaking against the state government. "Both the national parties want to destroy the JD(S), but we are ready to take on them," he said. Gowda said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should provide interim relief to Karnataka in the Mahadayi water-sharing dispute so that drinking water is supplied to the parched towns of North ...

SC pulls up Centre for not organising Kalasa-Banduri meetings 17.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court on Thursday pulled up the Union government, asking it why it did not act on Karnatakas request for holding meetings to resolve issues raised by Goa with regard to the Kalasa-Banduri drinking water project. The court, however, told Karnataka to stop the work on the project. "What are you doing," a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta asked advocate S Wasim A Qadri, representing the central government. Qadri, however, said, "We have taken a conscious decision not to hold any meeting till the dispute pending for sharing of Mahadayi water dispute is resolved by the tribunal." Senior advocate Fali S Nariman and advocate Anita Shenoy, appearing for the Karnataka government, agreed to stop construction work on the project. It involves diversion of 258 hectares of forest land in Western Ghats. "The Karnataka counsel says no construction will be carried out with regard to Kalasa-Banduri project. In view of the submission, nothing survives in the matter, the application is disposed ...

State tells SC it filed for Kalasa-Banduri approval, Centre begs to differ 16.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka government has claimed before the Supreme Court that it had applied for forest clearance of the Kalasa-Banduri drinking water project. This is in clear contrast to the affidavit filed by the Union government before the court. It has received no proposal from Karnataka for environmental clearance of the project, the Union government has told the court. Neither has it so far accorded any permission to Karnataka for the works, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change told the court on August 12, in an affidavit filed through advocate S Wasim A Qadri. However, contrary to the Centre's stand, the state government submitted a list of dates "to establish that applications had been made to the Ministry by Karnataka for forest clearance of the project". The court had, on August 3, asked the Centre and Karnataka government to submit if environmental and forest clearances were granted to the project. "It is a serious matter," the bench said, on a contention by a Goa-based NGO that no ...

The ruling Congress and principal Opposition party BJP on Monday decided to hold talks with their respective party leaders in Goa in an effort to finding an out-of-court solution to the Mahadayi river water dispute.

No proposal from state on Kalasa-Banduri, SC told 12.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Union government has told the Supreme Court that it has received no proposal from Karnataka for environmental clearance of the Kalasa-Banduri project. It has also not accorded any permission to Karnataka for the project so far, it said. The construction of the project in the ecologically-sensitive area of Western Ghats in the Mahadayi basin in Karnataka involved submergence of 258 hectares of forests. It was described as an "ecological bomb" by Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, for its "negative impact on the states ecology." Karnataka, for its part, said work on the project, meant to improve drinking water supply to the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad and the districts of Belagavi and Gadag, has almost been completed in 2014. "According to the records of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, no proposal has been received from Karnataka for scoping/environmental clearance," an affidavit filed by the ministry's officer said. "Carrying out any non-forestry activity on forest land ...

SC directs Centre to tell if K'taka sought eco clearance for Kalasa-Banduri proj 3.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the Union government to tell if Karnataka has sought any environmental clearance for the Kalasa-Banduri project in the Western Ghats that required diversion of about 258 hectares of forest land. "The issue required serious consideration," a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta said after Mahadayi Bachao Abhiyan, a group of activists and environmentalists, contended before the court that the project was continuing without any approval under the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980, and other related clearances from the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change. The court also directed the Karnataka government to file within a week an affidavit of a responsible officer stating whether an application has been made for forest and environment clearance and, if so, to whom and when and, the status of the application. "We need some clarity on the issue," the bench said, also seeking an affidavit from the Union government within a week. "We may note that ...

K'taka planting eco bomb through dams on Mahadayi: Parrikar 2.8.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Stating that the Mahadayi water dispute issue could not be resolved with the neighbouring states on the party lines, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday accused Karnataka of planting an "ecological bomb" by building dams upstream. Speaking in the Legislative Assembly on the water dispute involving Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra, Parrikar said Karnataka and Maharashtra have planned dams upstream the River Mahadayi, which meets Arabian Sea near Panaji. The Goa government has raised objections over the diversion, claiming that such an act would hamper the ecology of the coastal state. Karnataka plans to construct at least 7 dams and 3 hydroelectric projects by diverting the water to the River Malaprabha. He stated that constructing dams upstream will increase the salinity in the rivers of Goa and also ecologically affect the areas up to the Western Ghats. "This is an ecological bomb that Karnataka is planting in the form of dams," he told the House. "We brought this issue before the Water ...
