Madhya Pradesh government on Thursday stuck to its stand of not providing water from the Bansagar dam to Uttar Pradesh, accusing the neighbouring state of not sharing the cost of operation and maintenance of the dam.
To resolve the water dispute, Union Minister of Water Resources Uma Bharati Thursday had invited the chief ministers of both the states to Delhi , but both the CMs deputed bureaucrats.
During the meeting, MP Principal Secretary Radheshyam Julania – who attended the meeting on behalf of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, said the state had not stored water for UP.
