‘Turmoil over Baitarini River if govt remains callous’
Bhubaneswar: The negligent attitude of the Odisha government, as has been in the case of Mahanadi, could also give rise to turmoil over Baitarini River, warned senior Congress leader Niranjan Patnaik today.
The manner in which the Odisha government is playing politics over the Mahanadi water dispute, its yielding no results. Mahanadi flows through other states, if the State government does not pay heed to the issues of Baitarini River, which emerges from Odisha, the situation will soon spin out of control.
“The manner in which water of river Baitarini is being utilised at the upper catchment area it will create significant problems for Keonjhar district in future,” said Niranjan.
