Cong sets dam height as condition before talks

GANDHINAGAR: Leader of Opposition Amarsinh Chaudhary on Thursday announced that the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee would take up the Narmada project issue with Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh only after Union Rural Development Minister Sunderlal Patwa, who is from MP, directs Singh to keep the dam's height at 110 metres.

Talking to reporters at his weekly news conference, Chaudhary said that if Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel could convince Patwa, his party would not hesitate to meet Singh and pressurise him to accept Gujarat's plea.

The leader of Opposition said his party would take a positive stance once the state government succeeded in persuading Patwa, who in turn should speak to Digvijay Singh.

He reiterated that the best solution to the drinking water crisis of Saurashtra was the construction of a 250-km-long bridge across the Gulf of Cambay and laying a pipeline on the bridge that would supply Narmada waters from the nearest point in Bharuch, possibly Dahej to Ghogha in Bhavnagar district.

Referring to the Kalpasar project mooted by the government at Keshubhai's behest, Chaudhary said the proposed project was both very costly and would not solve the drinking water crisis.
