This project would involve diverting water of the Mahadayi river which flows in Goa from its two tributaries, Kalasa and Banduri in some of the northern districts of the state.
Although the issue is "pending before the (river) Tribunal, in principle the state of Goa should not oppose the reasonable and justified quantum of water meant to be utilised for drinking", Parrikar wrote.

He would have had his heart in his mouth when a better throw from long off could have resulted in his run out on 197. His breathtaking knock included a dozen sixes and 13 boundaries as he literally toyed with the opposition bowlers.
In the letter, the party's Goa spokesperson Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik has termed the move by Mr Parrikar on Christmas as that of being a "Bad Santa Claus" who is snatching the future of our children, which is river Mahadeyi.
Meanwhile, the Samithi has given call for a day-long "North Karnataka bandh" tomorrow and more than 100 organisations including JD (S), Karnataka Film Chamber have expressed their support to the Bandh. He had had promised to solve the issue by the year end. BJP national president Amit Shah is expected to visit Bengaluru on December 31 to hold a core committee meeting about election preparations in the state. "Karnataka government has written 15letters, including four to Goa Chief Minister, three to PrimeMinister to settle the issue amicably" he said, adding that thegovernment had also led an all-party delegation twice, seeking hisintervention as per the direction of the Tribunal to look for anoutside settlement to resolve the drinking water problem.
The Karnataka government had earlier petitioned the Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal which in its interim order had rejected the state's plea citing various grounds, including ecological damage the project may cause.
Not convinced by this, the protesters accused Yeddyurappa of not keeping up his promise, and called him "betrayer". Besides Parrikar and Yeddyurappa, BJP's Maharashtra unit chief participated in the meeting. "But, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and AICC president Rahul Gandhi have scuttled my attempts through a statement they got issued from Goa Congress president", he claimed.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in North Goa on Sunday, Goa BJP president and Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Tendulkar said the party was fully with Mr. Parrikar's stand, but added, "The CM has already indicated that this will happen only after the Karnataka elections". Instead of welcoming it, the Congress is opposing in Goa, but raising questions against BJP in Karnataka. The Congres highlighted how Parrikar had refused to respond to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's letters and had allowed the BJP to utilise the matter for electoral gains- further angering the crowds.
