Water Resources Minister Vinod Palyekar has condemned the action by Karnataka police of detaining the Goa team when they visited the Kankumbi site recently.

In fact sources indicate that  Karnataka authorities are planning on setting up a check post to keep a track of all visitors from Goa.

Recently, the Karnataka police detained around 8 Goa WRD officials at the Kankumbi site.

Ironically  the Goa government has directives from the Mhadei Water Dispute Tribunal to inspect the site as and when needed.

Palyekar said the officials were treated as criminals while we in Goa  we follow the principle of Athiti devo bhavo.
