Cauvery:All-party meet on Mar. 7


After the Supreme Court gave “partial relief” to Karnataka by awarding an additional 14.75 tmcft of Cauvery water to the State, the State government has decided to convene an all-party meeting on March 7 to decide the next course of action. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah plans to chair the meeting, which will discuss all issues related to the award, including the formation of the Cauvery Management Board. The government has been opposing the formation of the board.

JD(S) has already expressed its reservations on the Supreme Court verdict. Leaders of the Opposition BJP and JD(S) will provide suggestions to the government and the possible stand to be taken by the government in the future, sources in the Water Resources Department told The Hindu.
