Opening another front in its legal battle with Karnataka on Cauvery row, Tamil Nadu moved Supreme Court seeking damages from it for loss of crops caused by neighbouring state not releasing water.
The decision was taken in the backdrop of Supreme Court directing the state to implement the CRA order.
The SC pulled up the Karnataka government for failing to comply with the PM-headed Cauvery River Authority`s (CRA) directive to release 9,000 cusecs of water to TN.
The Cauvery River Authority headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would meet in New Delhi on September 19.
Jayalalithaa said the Karnataka govt is not ensuring the flow in Cauvery river during June to September as per monthly pattern in the interim order.
Karnataka has been "unjustly utilising" the water for summer irrigation from February to May by depleting storage in its four major reservoirs, Jaya said in a letter to PM Manmohan Singh.
