`Karnataka not wrong in attempting to divert Mhadei`

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday said there was nothing wrong in Karnataka`s attempts to divert the Mhadei river.



Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday said there was nothing wrong in Karnataka`s attempts to divert the Mhadei river waters because the BJP government in the neighbouring state was just defending their rights.

"What they (Karnataka) are doing is right because they are defending their rights," Parrikar told reporters here.

The CM, however said he will fight for the interest of Goa.

When asked whether he will try to work out an amicable situation over the dispute, Parrikar said any government in Karnataka, either BJP or non-BJP, will have the same approach towards Mhadei river diversion.

"Their attitude would be the same," he said.

Don`t two brothers fight over property, same way both BJP governments are fighting over Mhadei, he commented.
