    Cauvery verdict: We hope TN government will take appropriate step, says AIADMK

    "The people of Tamil Nadu feel that they have not got justice. The central government should immediately form Cauvery Management Board," he said.

    The Supreme Court on Friday said that Karnataka will get additional 14.75 TMC of cauvery water, Tamil Nadu will now get 177.25 instead of 192 TMC water. The court considered the water scarcity in Bengaluru while delivering the cauvery judgment and also said no deviance shall be shown by any state to the order. Security has been beefed up in Bengaluru and other parts of Karnataka.

    A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra gave the cauvery verdict while hearing Karnataka's Special Leave Petition (SLP) against the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal's grant of a water-sharing formula between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry.

    Security has been heightened in Bengaluru with city police commissioner T Suneel Kumar saying that 15,000 police personnel have been deployed. In addition to this, personnel of Karnataka State Reserved Police and other forces are also on the ground.
