Bengaluru: Karnataka minister for water resources, DK Shivakumar, wrote a letter to Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami requesting him for a meeting.

Shivakumar, on Thursday, told reporters that the project was being considered only for the power needs of Karnataka and not for irrigation. Watch this video on MyNation to know more in detail.
