Government of India
Subject: Regarding deletion of Goa's rivers as National Waterways 25, 27, 68, 71, 88 and 111 by Government of India
We write to you to invite your attention to declaration of six Goa's rivers as National Waterways by Government of India through National Waterways Act 2015. This decision was taking without consulting and prior informing fishing communities dependent upon these rivers (Chapora, Mapusa, Mandovi, Zuari, Cumbharjua and Sal) for our livelihoods.
We urge you to get Parliament to delete Goa's above cited rivers through Ammendment to National Waterways Act 2015.
