Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh has yet again dismissed the allegations from Odisha government regarding Mahanadi river as political.
He said that Mahanadi river still flows into Odisha to fill the Hirakud dam three times over.
The statement assumes significance as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi too had blamed the Odisha government for not utilizing the Mahanadi water properly and letting it go into the sea.
On the issue of his ongoing Vikas Yatra, he said that there is rush in the gatherings which is indicative that the masses do support the regime and its policies.
He also reiterated his earlier position on the issue of Shikshakarmis and said that a mutually respectable solution will soon be found out.
