Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday announced cancellation of the contentious Kharghar land deal. The deal pertains to the land given to Koyna dam project affected persons (PAP).

Record water discharge from Almatti dam 21.9.2017 deccanherald.com
A total of 90,000 cusecs of water was released from the Almatti reservoir on Thursday, a first for this year. Fifteen out of the total 26 gates were opened to let the water out to River Krishna.

BJP govt in Maharashtra more generous to Karnataka in water release' 6.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Union Minister Ananth Kumar said on Saturday that wherever the BJP was ruling, the government was pro-people. Addressing the executive committee meeting of the state BJP, he said, "Till the Congress was in power in Maharashtra, whenever Bagalkot, Vijayapura and other districts of Karnataka were in distress, it would not oblige the request of Karnataka for release of water from Koyna dam. Even when Maharashtra released water, Karnataka was charged an exorbitant Rs 3 crore per tmc feet. Now, the Devendra Fadnavis government of the BJP in Maharashtra has released 5 tmc feet of water in two instalments, free of cost." BJP general secretary Muralidhar Rao said a Congress-free Karnataka movement would give a big boost to the Congress-free India movement launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said the two main points for discussion at the meeting were achieving 150-plus target in the 2018 Assembly elections and 25-plus target in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Asserting that development agenda alone will ...
