‘Inter-State Water Disputes Act’ needs to be totally amended: CM


PTI, Mar 5, 2022, 3:19 PM IST

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday said the ‘Inter-State Water Disputes Act’ needs to be totally amended, as it creates more disputes than resolving them.

He was addressing the southern states’ conclave on the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ and ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ (Rural) Projects here.

“Our Inter-State Water Disputes Act needs to be totally amended. The name itself says interstate water disputes act. It creates more disputes than solving disputes. We need correction in our law so that more water is available for different sections of people, instead of narrow political considerations,” Bommai said. He claimed that river basin management is the only answer for that.
