Centre to file clarification petition in SC on Cauvery water issue

Supreme Court

Nearly a month after the decision of the Supreme Court on March 16, the Tamil Nadu government had appealed to the Centre to form the CMB and a Cauvery Water Monitoring Committee.

Meanwhile, the Centre has chose to move the Supreme Court seeking clarification on its February 16 judgement on the Cauvery dispute.

"My appeal to the prime minister is, please sir, you have the authority to create this CMB and you must do it". That is what our chief minister has done in the case of Cauvery. "I sincerely hope justice will prevail".

The Supreme Court raised the 270 tmcft share of Cauvery water for Karnataka by 14.75 tmcft and reduced Tamil Nadu's share while compensating it by allowing extraction of 10 tmcft groundwater from the river basin, saying the issue of drinking water has to be placed on a "higher pedestal".

His group had protested in Delhi's Jantar Mantar past year. "We have to exert pressure on the central government", he added. "Neither do they consider the plight of Tamil Nadu farmers nor do they respect the SC order". Earlier chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy held discussions with senior ministers and officials on the issue. The DMK and other Opposition parties along with the farmers have been staging continuous protest for the management board formation.

Radhakrishnan also promised the BJP's full support to the Tamil Nadu government in securing the state's rights in the Cauvery water issue.

The apex court in its much-awaited verdict on the decades-long dispute increased Karnataka's share of water and directed the state to release 177.25 tmc to Tamil Nadu. "The Tamil Nadu government will never let the state down. has given six weeks time for the formation of Cauvery management board, so if nothing happens we all will discuss future course of action", Pannerselvam said at the state assembly. In fact the accusation that the state government is just a shadow government has now intensified.

MP Navaneethakrishnan said, "How can the Centre not heed what the Supreme court has said?"
