Uma Bharti after the meeting said that Tamil Nadu did not accept Karnataka's proposal for a central expert team to visit both states and carry out an inspection. "I am very disappointed as I could not find a solution. If the need be I shall sit in hunger strike to solve the problem," she also said.

The meeting got into a loop when both sides did not agree on the point of an expert committee. Karnataka insisted that an expert committee should first visit both the states following which water will be released.

Tamil Nadu felt that the expert committee should visit the state only after the water is released.

The Centre will now inform the Supreme Court about these developments on Friday. The court had told the centre to get both the chiefs of the state to sit across the table to find a solution. The court will hear the matter on Friday.
