Coimbatore, Nov 13 (UNI) Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder Ramadoss today said there would be no change in attitude of the new government led by BJP in Karnataka when it comes to providing Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.

Addressing a press conference here, he said, ''all political parties in Karnataka were united in its stand not to share Cauvery water with Tamil Nadu and we can expect the same from the new Karnataka government.'' He accussed the Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu of failing to mount pressure on the Centre in getting the state's due right of water.

The PMK always demanded a Common School System and Neighbourhood Studying System. Though Dr Muthukumaran Committee submitted its Report, no discussion had taken place on the report in the Assembly, he added.

On Sri Lankan Tamil issue, he said Chief Minister M Karunanidhi should mount pressure on the Centre, demanding that the Centre ask the Sri Lankan government to find a solution to the vexed issue.

''If the present situation continues, there will be no Tamils left in the island nation,'' he said accusing the Sri Lankan government of human rights violation.

Stating that the PMK was acting only as a responsible critic and not an enemy of the state government, Dr Ramadoss said his party, after various deliberations, had brought out draft reports on ''Agriculture and Rural Development in Tamil Nadu'', ''Rejuvenating Tamil Nadu's Youth'' and ''Industrial Development in Tamil Nadu - An Alternative Model.'' The PMK leader criticised the state government's reported move to privatise the inter-state bus routes and urged the government to drop it.
