Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa on Tuesday declined to react to his Tamil Nadu
counterpart J Jayalalithaa`s demand to the Centre to notify
the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal`s final award.

"The issue is now before the Supreme Court. I can`t comment
on the issue at this stage," he told reporters here.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa during her recent
visit to Delhi urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to notify
the Tribunal`s award in the Union government`s gazette.

Karnataka has contested the final order of the Tribunal on
water allocation on the ground it has not been given justice.
