Cauvery: BJP to boycott all party meet

The BJP decided to boycott the all party meeting while terming it as a waste exercise. During the last all party meeting, the BJP had suggested that water should not be released.

However, the Congress did not take their suggestion into account and decided to release water while abiding with the verdict of the Supreme Court. If our views are not taken into account then what is the point in attending such meetings, the BJP leaders said.
