Cauvery water dispute: CWRC order a 'death sentence' for Karnataka, says Yediyurappa

Bengaluru, Sep 27 (IANS): Taking exception to the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee's (CWRC) order to release 3,000 cusec of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till October 15, former Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has said that the order pronounced is a "death sentence" for the state and slammed the Congress government for losing the trust of the people, especially farmers of the state.

"If the state government releases any more water to Tamil Nadu, it is a setback for the self-respect of the state. The situation has come in the backdrop of negligence of the state government with regard to the Cauvery issue," he added.

The Congress-led Karnataka government has lost the trust of the people, especially farmers, by releasing water to Tamil Nadu amid the drought situation.

The move of the state government to test the patience of the farmers of the state is "incorrect", Yediyurappa said.

Reacting to the order announced by CWRC, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that he will discuss with his legal team about the order to release 3,000 cusec of water.

After discussion, further decision on the Cauvery issue would be taken, he added.

The order will be questioned before the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA), said Mahesh, the Managing Director of Cauvery Water Board.

"The matter may come up in CWMA tomorrow or day after, the order will be questioned, he added.

    Out of all people talking in the air very few know the real situation about water availability .... An easy topic for politicking and blame the incumbent govt... Any committee will not make one sided decision... If they are directing to release specified flow of water there must be a definite science behind it... Man is basically selfish and always tends to keep much more than he requires...

    A good parent will never try to get benefit out of two children's dispute but try to find amicable solution to their problem. Such should have been the attitude, words and actions of our politicians. But some of our politicians are like Vultures wait for troubles to creep in to fetch their pound of flesh. Should our people elect such people to represent or lead us? Mostly the solutions and benefits are found from apolitical or impartial persons!

    Tuluvas have faced a metaphorical death sentence through the diversion of the Nethravathi River and its tributaries, orchestrated by Karnataka politicians such as Veerappa Moily and DV Sadananda Gowda. This action is seen as a reciprocation to Kannadigas for bestowing them with the position of Chief Minister.
