Goa Water Resources Minister Vinod Palyekar on Saturday visited the site in Karnataka where, according to the Goa government, the neighbouring state is allegedly constructing a canal on a tributary of Mahadeyi river. In a tweet, the Minister said, ''Visited Kankumbi along wit my WRD Team. It's clear now that Karnataka is playing politics over Mahadayi issue. Our Govt will produce all the evidence before the #Mahadayi Tribunal on 6th Feb. We are committed to protect #Goem#Goemkar#Goemkarponn.'' The Goa government had on Friday alleged that Karnataka had resumed work on a canal at Kankumbi, disrespecting a Supreme Court order. It had also claimed to have photographs to prove that there was violation on the part of the the neighbouring state on court orders. Meanwhile, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has directed state Chief Secretary Dharmendra Sharma to write a letter to the Karnataka Government asking it to stop work. ''As directed Chief Secretary is writing letter to CS of Karnataka to immediately stop the work of Bund at Kalsa,'' a government spokesperson had said on Friday.More UNI AKM 1928
