Narmada number tiff: Congress gives proof, BJP stands its ground
The BJP and the Congress continued to hit out at each other over the canals being constructed as part of the Sardar Sarovar Project. A mild ruckus was also created over the issue of Kathakar Morari Bapu. The Speaker was forced to point out that both the concerned parties were correct as far as their data is concerned.
The house allowed Leader of Opposition Paresh Dahanani to clarify his stand on his earlier claim that as per the Social Economic Report, only 6 lakh ha got water for irrigation. It also gave deputy chief minister Nitin Patel to explain the state's stand.
