Cauvery row: SC asks Karnataka to release 4 tmc of water to Tamil Nadu

The Supreme Court on Thursday asked Karnataka Government to give four tmc of water to Tamil Nadu and has questioned the Centre to file an affidavit on the same.

Meanwhile, Attorney General K K Venugopal in the apex court submitted papers stating, “the Cauvery management board draft has to be tabled just before the Union Cabinet and as Primary Minister Narendra Modi is in Karnataka for elections.”

He included that the draft, hence, has not been approved nonetheless.

The court has not scheduled the matter for hearing on May perhaps 8.

Reacting to the court’s order Tamil Nadu Minister D. Jayakumar claimed that the ruling of the major court “cannot be accepted”.

Before on Wednesday, the central federal government sought an extension of two weeks from the court to draft the water sharing scheme for the formation of Cauvery Management Board (CMB).

The apex court experienced criticised the Centre for neither framing the scheme in 6 weeks as directed by it nor approaching the court prior to the March 31 deadline to convey difficulties, if any, being faced by it.

On April 9, the major court condemned the Centre and questioned it to body a draft scheme by May perhaps 3 for implementation of its February 16 judgment.

On February 16, a a few-judge SC bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and A.M. Khanwilkar pronounced the judgement on the Cauvery Water Dispute involving the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and the UT of Puducherry.

The bench directed Karnataka to release 177.25 TMC of water, in its place of the 192 TMC to Tamil Nadu.
