Meanwhile, Dy.CM D.K. Shivakumar, will fly to Jaipur to meet the Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat in Jaipur.

After the CWRC recommendation came out, Shivakumar said that Karnataka is in no position to release Cauvery River water to Tamil Nadu, as it doesn’t have enough water storage, due to lack of adequate rainfall in the river basin region. He said, the matter is next going to come before the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA), most probably by tomorrow and Karnataka will vehemently put forward its stand before it.
