Karnataka to decide next move over Cauvery water row today
New Delhi : Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah called for a separate cabinet and all-party on Wednesday to find out a way over the Cauvery water issue, after the Supreme Court directed the state to release 6,000 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till September 27.
While addressing the mediapersons, Siddaramaiah said, “It is very difficult to implement the Supreme Court’s order to release water as we do not have enough water.”
The CM further said, Karnataka had placed certain facts before the Cauvery Supervisory Committee, and even after that they had directed the state on Monday to release 3,000 cusecs per day.
The SC had ordered Karnataka to release 6,000 cusecs of Cauvery water per day to Tamil Nadu from Wednesday till September 27.
#Meanwhile Siddaramaiah appealed to masses to maintain peace and assured that the government will protect the interest of the state and its people.
#During the all-party meet the pros and cons of the order would be discussed. After the meet following opinions of leaders from all parties further proceedings will be done.
#The security has been tightened around Bengaluru (Karnataka) following the all-party meet.
