The State government is planning to name a major irrigation canal after eminent jurist Fali S. Nariman, who passed away on Wednesday.

Speaking on the condolence motion moved by Speaker U.T. Khader in the Legislative Assembly, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister K.H. Patil said that Nariman’s services to the State would be remembered by naming the major canal after him.

“Instead of naming a building after him, an important canal can be named after him. We will discuss this with the Water Resources Minister (D.K. Shivakumar),” Mr Patil said. The House observed a minute silence as a mark of respect.
