The ministry of environment did not give environmental clearance to transfer Mhadei water to Malprabha river. It was a reply to the inquiry made at officers’ level asking if environmental clerance is required to transfer water between two rivers for the purpose of drinking water. But even this letter would be withdrawn. This is what chief minister Dr Pramod Sawant says after returning from Delhi.
Chief Minister Dr Sawant returned from Delhi after the all-party delegation met union environment minister Prakash Javadekar.
