HUBBALLI: Members of Rajya Raitha Sanghatanegala Okkoota recently met Goa Water Resources Minister Dayanand Mandrekar and requested him to solve the Mahadayi river diversion project amicably.

Informing reporters here on Saturday, convener of the forum Vinaykumar Patil said the forum members were successful in convincing Mandrekar about the drinking water problem in the region.  Patil said Mandrekar replied that Union Minister Manohar Parrikar was the only leader who could take a suitable decision on the matter.
