Cauvery: Centre seeks 2 weeks time for framework agreement
The Centre has sought two weeks time from the Supreme Court to frame a scheme to implement the Cauvery waters verdict. The Centre informed the court that in another two weeks time it would have the scheme ready and would submit to the court.
Earlier the Supreme Court directed the Union Government to file a draft solution in connection with the Cauvery Waters case. The court was hearing a contempt plea filed by the Tamil Nadu government against the Centre on the Cauvery issue.
The plea states that the Centre failed to set up the Cauvery Management Board before the said deadline. The SC on Monday told the Centre to file a draft scheme by May 3 on how to implement its order. The draft would comprise the Centre plans to take on the distribution of water between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry.
