    Views of leaders of all parties would be sought and the government would take further course of action so that interests of farmers would be safeguarded, the release said, adding that the discussions were on with legal experts on the matter.

    On Saturday DMK said it has decided to convene an "all-party meeting" on the Cauvery issue as the AIADMK government was not paying heed to its demand of holding an all-party meet.

    "As an opposition party, we have decided to convene an all party meeting and will invite the AIADMK which is the ruling party... we will also invite the BJP," Stalin said, without mentioning the date of the proposed meeting.

    "Not only that... I have invited Kamal Hassan, who is going to launch his party on February 21.He has assured us about his participation," he said.

    The Supreme Court had on February 16 directed the Karnataka government to release 177.25 tmcft of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, reducing the quantum specified by the tribunal in 2007.
