All eyes would be on the Supreme Court which will today take up the Cauvery Waters matter between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Tamil Nadu has sought for the release of 60 TMC of water and Karnataka has said it cannot release that much.
The counsel for Karnataka, Mohan Katarki tells OneIndia that Tamil Nadu is under the impression that this is not a distress year.
We have no more water to spare is what we will tell the Supreme Court which had on the last date of hearing told Karnataka to live and let live.
Katarki says that there can be some good will gesture, but that would depend on a lot of factors which we will tell the court today. He however says that Tamil Nadu is under the impression that this is not a distress year for Karnataka.
While the rains have been good in North Karnataka, it is the Cauvery basin in particular that has suffered the most this year.
Katarki further states that they would request the Supreme Court to send a fact finding committee. The committee could analyse the inflow and outflow and then report to the Supreme Court.
The point that we are making is that we do not have any more water to spare, Katarki also says.
