Hemant dares Chief Minister to come out in open water sharing formula with Bihar on Mandal Dam

Ranchi: Leader of the opposition in Jharkhand Hemant Soren today dared Chief Minister Raghubar Das and State’s Water Resources
Minister Chandraprakash Chowdhary to come out in open with the real water sharing agreement which has been inked with Bihar
over the Mandal Dam project.

Addressing a press conference at his residence here he said that as per the formula 75 per cent water would go to Bihar while farmers of Jharkhand would get only 25 per cent of the water. He said that the Chief Minister and the Water Resources Minister should address a joint press conference and tell the people of Garhwa and Palamu what is the real amount of water which will be available for them. “In the project the land of Jharkhand will be lost and villages of state will be displaced including Chamosariya village which belongs to martyr Neelambar Peetambar, the farmers and SC ST people of the state would be displaced but water will go to Bihar,” he said. He said that the agreement which has been inked over the dam will adversely impact the future of the farmers of these areas.

Mr Soren said that his party was opposed to the present water sharing formula of the project and calls for its cancellation and said that the party is off the view that 70 per cent water should be given to the state. He said that for the first time  such a Chief Minister was occupying chair in the office who invites outsiders and gives them water of his state. He said that Chief Minister Raghubar Das was indulging in such acts as he too was an outsider who is acting as an agent of the corporate sitting in Delhi Mumbai and Gujarat and said that people of Palamu would oppose the project at any cost.
