Tamil Nadu urges Karnataka to release water
CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu has urged Karnataka to release Cauvery water as directed by the Supreme Court last week. Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary P. Rama Mohan Rao has written to his Karnataka counterpart Arvind Jadhav in this regard.
In the letter, he is believed to have referred to Karnataka’s “violation” of the court’s order. The Supreme Court had asked Karnataka to release 6,000 cubic feet of water per second (cusecs) till September 27.
Last Friday, the Karnataka legislature adopted a resolution that Cauvery water would not be drawn for any purpose other than drinking.
