The Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah has called for another all party meeting over the Cauvery Waters issue. The Supreme Court had ordered Karnataka to release 18,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu while adjourning hearing on the matter to Friday.


Government sources tell OneIndia that it would not be possible for Karnataka to release any water to Tamil Nadu as there is a resolution by the legislative assembly. The legislature represents the will of the people and unless that resolution is changed no other decision can be taken.

Meanwhile Siddaramaiah continued to strike a defiant note stating that if the Supreme Court says release water, it does not immediately become a law or order. Siddaramaiah who will meet with leaders of all parties is also expected to be in Delhi tomorrow to attend the meeting convened by the centre on this issue.

As Tamil Nadu chief minister, J Jayalalithaa is in hospital, the state would be represented by E K Palaniswami, the PWD minister of the state. The meeting will be held in Delhi tomorrow and will be chaired by union minister Uma Bharti.

Meanwhile the police have imposed Section 144 of the CrPC or prohibitory orders in a bid to avert any trouble. Normal life will however not be affected the police have assured while stating all precautionary measures have been taken.
