BJP scoffs at MP plea to bar `kar seva'

AHMEDABAD: State BJP spokesman Bharat Pandya on Saturday criticised the proposed kar seva at the Narmada dam site by farm leader Sharad Joshi, saying that such agitatational programmes should be held in Madhya Pradesh given the state's negative stance on the Narmada project.

Pandya scoffed at the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh's advice to Gujarat Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel not to permit the kar seva as it would amount to violation of the Narmada Water Dispute Tribunal and also contempt of the Supreme Court.

He said, it was shocking that Mr Singh, who did not prevent the 'Rally for Valley' organised by anti-dam activists in Madhya Pradesh, was urging his counterpart here not to allow the kar seva. The pro-Narmada farmers should remain away from participating in such programmes which would surely divide the public opinion on the issue and adversely affect the interests of Gujarat which was fighting a grim battle in the Supreme Court, he added.
