Tamil Nadu
Chennai, June 26: Resuming its war against Karnataka over Cauvery water, Tamil Nadu on Tuesday, June 25 moved the Supreme Court.

Urging the court to pass order for Karnataka to release water for its neighbouring state, Tamil Nadu filed a petition in the apex court.

According to the petition, the state has recei­ved only 1.7 tmcft at Billi­guntulu as on June 24, whi­ch is not on account of release from Ka­rnataka rese­rvoir.

Tamil Nadu sought a direction to Karnataka to immediately release 10tmcft to it for June. The state also urged the court for a direction to the Central Government to constitute the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regu­lation Committee (CWRC).

Earlier the Cauvery Supervisory Committee on June 12 had rejected Tamil Nadu's demand for its share of water saying it was not feasible, given the deficit in inflows and storage level in reservoirs in Karnataka.

Rejecting Tamil Nadu's request, the committee had said, "Looking at the data as cited above such as the deficit in inflows and very low storages in the reservoir in the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, the request of Tamil Nadu for release of water by Karnataka was considered and found not feasible as of now."
