After Mekedatu, K'taka Cong to take up padayatra on Mahadayi
After Mekedatu, K'taka Cong to take up padayatra on Mahadayi

Belagavi (Karnataka), Jan 18 (TIWN) The Karnataka Congress which has organised Mekedatu padayatra (foot march) despite curfew orders is all set to launch another foot march demanding implementation of the Mahadayi project.

Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Executive President Sathish Jarakiholi has made an announcement in this regard on Tuesday in the state’s Belagavi district.  The neighbouring state of Goa is objecting to the implementation of the project.  “We are discussing the implementation of the Mahadayi project in the platforms of the party. Once the Covid pandemic subsides, a foot march demanding implementation of Mahadayi project would be taken up,” he said.  The padayatra would be taken up from the Nargund in Gadag district to the birth place of Mahadayi River near Kankumbi in Belagavi district.  The blueprint for the padayatra would be ready soon. Padayatra’s demanding implementation of the Mekedatu project was a success. The foot march has successfully got the attention of the government on the issue, he said.  The sharing of the waters of the river Mahadayi is a cause of disputes between the states of Karnataka and Goa. The Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal (MWDT) is a tribunal which adjudicates the dispute over River Mahadayi water allocation.  The Karnataka government proposes to divert some water from the Mahadayi River to the Malaprabha River basin as part of the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project.
