first_imgWith the dispute over Mahanadi river water sharing between Odisha and Chhattisgarh reaching a flashpoint, experts and civil society groups have urged the two governments to discuss all the contentious issues for a meaningful solution.At the second Odisha river conference, which concluded on Monday, experts said competitive politics over the Mahanadi water sharing was only making the matter complicated.A group of civil society organisations, river and water experts and academics from across the country and the two States gathered here to build an Inter-State Cooperation Framework for the resolution of the Mahanadi river water dispute.Politics over conflicts“There have been a lot of politics and inter-State river water conflicts in the country. But in the process of fighting, let the rights of the river as an ecological entity not get snatched. While the dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh is rife, it is unfortunate that both the States are treating the Mahanadi as a commodity and not a natural resource,” said Ranjan Panda, the convenor of Water Initiatives Odisha.“No doubt Chhattisgarh has constructed many dams and barrages without the consent of Odisha and has obstructed a lot of water, but that does not mean we can conclude that Chhattisgarh has siphoned off water from Odisha’s share,” said Mr. Panda.“We need a comprehensive understanding and analysis of the impacts of all these structures and availability of water in the basin. Let the tribunal decide how to make such an analysis and instruct Chhattisgarh to stop these obstructions if they are illegal,” Mr. Panda said, urging the two States not to close the door on dialogue.Internationally renowned climate change expert Saroj Dash hoped good sense would prevail and the two States would climb down from their stand and make space for dialogue. “The premise for the discussion should be cooperation, not conflict,” Mr. Dash said.“We don’t need either Odisha-centric or Chhattisgarh-centric approach. People’s rights on the river should be the guiding principle for dialogue,” said Premananda Panda, an academic.Mahanadi, the sixth largest river in India, originates from Chhattisgarh and enters the Bay of Bengal travelling 851 km, of which 357 km lies in Chhattisgarh and 494 km in Odisha. Odisha has been grumbling that the Mahanadi is witnessing an 80% reduction of water flow in non-monsoon months while Chhattisgarh says it is only storing river water.last_img read more

first_imgIt has been little over a year that Mehtab Hossain made his comeback to the senior national team after a stellar season for East Bengal.Having made his senior team debut during the SAFF Championships in 2005, the midfielder’s international career has been blighted by injuries and despite performing well at the club level, he failed to make the cut for the Asian Cup in 2011.Now with a new chief coach – Dutchman Wim Koevermans at the helm, Mehtab is aiming to give his best so that India can complete a hat-trick of Nehru Cup titles, even though players like Bhaichung Bhutia, Climax Lawrence and Mahesh Gawli have retired.”Some of the young players who performed well in the AFC under-22 championship have the potential to succeed at a higher level. It is hard to replace a Bhaichung or Climax but players such as Manandeep Singh have to take up the challenge,” Mehtab told Mail Today.Mehtab, who recently returned from Scotland after undergoing trials at Airdrie FC, said that the experience of playing in foreign conditions benefited him immensely. He says that the team management was impressed with him but he was not able to procure a work permit.”Playing in Scotland was a great experience. The facilities and the environment are excellent and the coaching staff at Airdrie was impressed with my skills. But I was not able to join them because of work permit issues. But I have got assurance from East Bengal that they would support me if I get a chance to play abroad,” Mehtab said.advertisementThe senior team has not played any tournament after the AFC Challenge Cup debacle in March and Mehtab admits that success in Nehru Cup would provide a boost. “The players know the importance of the tournament. The coach is trying to bring in a new style of play and as professional players, we have to try our best to implement his ideas on the field,” he added.last_img read more
