Mr Dattatreya said the resolution by Democratic Progressive
Alliance (DPA) constituents on the Cauvery Tribunal's ruling was 'drama'.
DPA allies, who were part of the UPA Government at the Centre, had appealed to people to send telegrams to the Tribunal to reconsider, instead of pressuring the Prime Minister to take steps for expedition of the Tribunal's final award, he said.
'This only showed that they are soft pedalling on the issue and trying to shirk their responsibility,' Mr Dattatreya charged.
Calling Cauvery the lifeline of people of Tamil Nadu, he said 13 Union Ministers from the state should discuss the issue with the Prime Minister and seek an early solution.
He also flayed Congress President Sonia Gandhi and DMK chief M Karunanidhi for being silent on the Mullaperiyar issue during electioneering. 'The DPA is adopting double standards on both Cauvery and Mullaperiyar issues,' he charged.
He said Ms Gandhi's appeal to people yesterday to vote for the DPA to get more Central funds only showed 'their discrimination against non-Congress Governments.' Stating the Centre had so far only allocated a 'meagre amount' towards tsunami and flood relief in the state, the BJP leader said no concrete steps had been taken for implementation of the Sethusamudram project and declaration of Tamil as classical language.
