Bangalore, Mar 14 (UNI) Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today alleged that the Tamil Nadu government had the tacit support of the UPA government at the Centre for 'illegal' construction of a dam across Cauvery river near Hogenakkal.
Talking to newspersons here, the BJP leader charged that ''the Tamil Nadu government, giving scant respect to Cauvery water sharing dispute pending before the Supreme Court, is going ahead with the project.'' He said the BJP would launch a protest against the project and a party delegation would visit the disputed site on March 16.
''By remaining silent on the issue, the Karnataka Governor is doing an injustice to the people of Karnataka,'' he alleged.
Mr Yeddyurappa 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, who could have benefitted from the scheme before Raj Bhavan tomorrow,'' he said.
