Sanjay Kolhe, along with a group of Greenpeace India volunteers met State Agriculture Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil and submitted the support of more than 2,75,000 people who have signed the petition demanding the CM of Maharashtra, Prithviraj Chavan to give back the water that belonged to farmers.

The meeting closely followed the action of the group of volunteers, where they sought the 'vote' of peoples representatives by asking them to choose a 'charcoal matka' representing water for the coal power plants or a matka filled with grains and pulses - as a symbolic representation of a choice to provide water for farmers or coal power plants. Colaba police however escorted the young volunteers from approaching the MLA's in the area and later released them near Azad Maidan.

The Minister after carefully listening to the demands, endorsed the farmers irrigation water rights over coal power plants and advised the activists also to seek the legal route by to fight for their rights.
