Karnataka assembly resolves to release Cauvery water
Bengaluru, Oct 3 (IANS) A joint session of the Karnataka legislature on Monday unanimously passed a resolution to release water for irrigation purposes to farmers in the state, some of which will flow to Tamil Nadu.
Though the modified resolution did not mention Tamil Nadu, it is implied that some of the water will go to the neighbouring state.
The resolution is for release of water to farmers in the Cauvery basin for crops and for drinking requirement.
This comes in the wake of the Supreme Court rapping the Karnataka government for not following its orders on release of water.
“Have you released some water? There can be a part compliance of our order. We can understand your difficulty,” it said on Monday when senior counsel Shekhar Naphade, appearing for Tamil Nadu, said Karnataka has not released any water as directed by the apex court.
