It's a battle that is hurting Indians. A dangerous game of parochial politics and brinkmanship rages on between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
While Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa has jumped to take credit for the Supreme Court verdict, the situation in Karnataka has worsened over the last 4 days. In fact the decision of Karnataka govt to release water to Tamil Nadu has only led to escalation in tension on the ground.
Cine stars have joined farmers in protest against the Siddarammiah’s govt as Karnataka stares at a total lockdown tomorrow. That's not all, opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by BS Yeddyurappa has mounted a scathing attack on the state govt has even demanded the Chief Minister's resignation.
