By Vicky

The crucial verdict in the Cauvery Waters disputes case between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu will be pronounced by the Supreme Court tomorrow.

SC to deliver Cauvery verdict tomorrow

The verdict will be pronounced by a Bench comprising Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra, Justices Amitava Roy and Khanwilkar.

The court had in January said that it would deliver within a month its verdict on the decades old Cauvery water dispute between riparian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, saying enough confusion has been created on it for over two decades.

The top court said that any forum could touch the matter relating to the Cauvery basin, only after it gave its verdict in four weeks.

The Bench had reserved its verdict after a marathon hearing on September 20, 2017.

The atmosphere would be tense in both states as a favourable verdict would be expected. In Karnataka, a poll bound state, the passions would be extremely high.

Meanwhile security has already been tightened around the KRS dam and Mandya. Security for the KRS dam was topmost on the agenda of a recent security meet in Karnataka as it has been the focal point of the century-old inter-state water dispute.

Officials of the Karnataka State Industrial Security Force, which has deployed men at the dam, said it needed back-up to ensure its safety should there be trouble following the verdict. At its request it was decided to get additional police from neighbouring districts for Mandya.
