Bangalore, Mar 14 (UNI) Tamil Nadu government had tacit support from the UPA government at the center in the 'illegal' construction of a dam across Cauvery river near Hogenakkal, former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa alleged here today.
Speaking to newspersons here today the BJP leader charged that Tamil Nadu government, giving scant respect to Cauvery water sharing dispute pending before Supreme Court, was going ahead with the project and said that BJP would launch a protest against the proposed project. He would also visit the disputed site on March 16, he said.
Alleging that Tamil Nadu government taking up the Rs 1400 crore could not have been possible without the tactical support of the UPA government. "By keeping silent on the issue, the Karnataka Governor is doing an injustice to the people of Karnataka," he alleged.
Mr Yeddyurappa also alleged that the Governor had not taken any step to implement the Rs 250-crore Sandhya Suraksha scheme approved by the previous government. "The party will organise a huge rally of those beneficiaries who could have benefited form the scheme before Rajbhavan tomorrow," he said.
