SC asks Centre to summon CMs on Cauvery
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to convene meetings of Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on release of Cauvery river waters.
The internal strife over Cauvery river water has resulted in massive protests both in the state of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The Supreme Court had earlier told Karnataka that it must release 6,000 cusecs of water for a week to assist farmers in Tamil Nadu. However, Karnataka had not adhered to this order.
