Centre refuses to form tribunal on Mahanadi water dispute

Bhubaneswar: The Centre today refused to form a tribunal to resolve the Mahanadi water row between Odisha and Chhattisgarh.

In an affidavit filed before the SC, the Centre said the Odisha government did not provide required information, hence, there is no need to constitute a tribunal.

'It is submitted that no irreparable loss or irreversible injury has been caused by the State of Chhattisgarh to Plantiff State (Odisha) in respect of Mahanadi River. The Plaintiff has failed to adduce any evidence that rights of plaintiff on River Mahanadi have been adversely affected,' said the affidavit.

Odisha has been alleging that the Chhattisgarh government was violating a 1983 treaty on Mahanadi waters by constructing unauthorised dams and barrages.
