Khandwa: It has been 17 days since villagers in Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh have been protesting in neck-deep water demanding compensation. Sources say that a major breakthrough is likely. Even as a Central fact-finding team reaches Khandwa on Monday, sources have indicated to CNN-IBN that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan is likely to agree on the deduction of water level at the Omkareshwar Dam to 189 metre.

He is also likely to form a three-member committee that will look at all the demands of the protesting villagers over the next three months.
