Karnataka Chief Minister B.S.Yeddyurappa on Thursday said that Chief Secretary-level talks would be held soon to find amicable solutions to outstanding issues between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Mr. Yeddyurappa visited the Lakshmi Hayagreevar temple and the Sri Devanatha Swamy temple at Thiruvahindrapuram near here. Asked about the resolution of the Cauvery dispute and the proposed hydro-electric project (on the Karnataka side) as well as the comprehensive water supply project (on the Tamil Nadu side) at Hogenakkal, Mr. Yeddyurappa said the official-level talks would address these issues too.

Asked about the relationship with Tamil Nadu, he said that ever since the installation of the statues of saint poets Tiruvalluvar and Sarvajna in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, cordial relationship prevailed between the States.
