Release of Cauvery water to TN

Mysuru: Over 100 farmers came to city this morning from Srirangapatna to protest against the release of Cauvery water from the Krishna Raja Sagar Dam to Tamil Nadu.

The farmers, who staged a dharna in front of Cauvery Command Area Development Authority (CADA) office on Sayyaji Rao Road, shouted slogans against Mandya District In-charge Minister M. Krishnappa and CM Siddharamaiah accusing them of neglecting the plight of farmers along the Cauvery basin who have been waiting for water since months.

They also said that the State Government, instead of releasing water to canals to help farmers in agriculture, was releasing water to Tamil Nadu from the KRS amidst tight Police security.

Farmers also threatened to intensify their protest by jumping into river if the State Government does not stop the water release to Tamil Nadu. They also alleged that Siddharamaiah government was releasing water only to retain power.

    Dear Sir,
    Cauvery water is national property.It is not belongs to Karnataka.Water has to be distributed among states like how water distributes among neighbouring countries.

    Dear all,
    100 years old water sharing rules can’t apply now for kaveri. since increase in population and decrease in monsoon rain strength. So new rule considering complete water available from source till TN destination point and consider rain water reach in TN and equally share water btwn Karnataka and TN. Pls no politics from TN
