TN to approach SC against CRA ruling
Chennai: Tamil Nadu government will approach the Supreme Court against the Cauvery Regulatory Authority`s ruling asking Karnataka to release 9000 cusecs of water.
Chief Minister Jayalalithaa today held a review meeting with her senior cabinet colleagues, including Finance Minister O Panneerselvam, besides top officials, to discuss the matter.
"At the end of the meeting, the Chief Minister directed (the officials) to immediately file a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to Karnataka to release Tamil Nadu its due share of water," a state government release said.
The meeting of the Cauvery River Authority, headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 19, failed to produce a solution with both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu rejecting Singh`s award of 9000 cusecs to save standing crops in the delta region of Tamil Nadu.
Karnataka Chief Minister Jagdish Shettar had staged a walkout, saying the state was not ready to give "even a drop of water" to Tamil Nadu, while Jayalalithaa called the meeting a "totally disappointed" affair and declared that the state would move the Supreme Court.
