Caubery Dispute: Karnataka Asked to Release 6,000 Cusecs

The Supreme Court told Karnataka to comply with its order to supply 6,000 cusecs of water daily till Friday to Tamil Nadu, brushing off vehement opposition from state counsel Fali Nariman who cited a resolution passed by the state legislature against any further release of water. “We will not release water. We can't.The House has already passed a resolution,“ Nariman told a bench comprising justices Dipak Misra and Uday Lalit. But the court insisted that the state government uphold the “majesty“ of the law.
The interim order will continue while the Central government intervenes to soothe flaring tempers in both states and gets the two chief ministers to get back to the negotiating table.
