MNS opposes release of water from Gangapur dam



Nashik: Local MNS MLA Nitin Bhosle has warned against releasing water from Gangapur dam to Marathwada region citing insufficient stock.

Gangapur dam is filled only 85 percent to its capacity. Moreover there is reservation in release of water for industries, drinking purpose and for thermal power station.

“We will stage MNS style agitation if water is released," Bhosle said.

Nashik Municipal Corporation last week cancelled the 50 percent water-cut imposed in the city after deficient rainfall.

Shiv Sena MLA from Kopargaon in Ahmednagar district Ashokrao Kale has also opposed release of water to Marathwada.
