Last week after the state’s claims over the Mahadayi’s water were raised during a day-long bandh in Karnataka, the Goa CM sought to underplay his letter and said the water dispute will be fought before the Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal (File)

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parikkar’s letter to his party’s CM face in Karnataka, B.S. Yeddyurappa, last month, has given a new twist to a more than three-decade long river-water dispute. Goa will not oppose “in principle” sharing the waters of Mahadayi river with Karnataka for drinking purposes, Parikkar wrote.
The letter provoked angry responses in Parikkar’s home state, including from Goa’s water resources minister, Vinoda Paliencar. Karnataka CM, Siddaramaiah, dismissed the letter as an election gimmick.
