The tri-state meeting on Mahadayi river diversion convened by Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar Monday threw a mixed bag of opinions, with leaders from the Congress, NCP, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP), besides the ruling BJP government, also present at the meet. During the discussion with representatives of Karnataka and Maharashtra, Parsekar said he will ensure that Goa’s interests are not compromised.
While the Congress and GFP advised the CM against participating in the meeting, MGP and NCP leaders said representatives of the Goa government may formally meet counterparts from Maharashtra and Karnataka, but said no commitment must be accorded during the course of dialogue.
Parsekar told the media that not adhering to the Mahadeyi Water Dispute Tribunal’s suggestion would be improper.

“It won’t be fair to refuse to meet the CMs of Karnataka and Maharashtra… Although the participants (opposition leaders) were of the opinion that we will lose time in such discussions… we have decided to go ahead and meet them,” he said.
