Cauvery: Centre seeks time, Tamil Nadu for contempt action

MK Stalin

Based on this the State government had filed a contempt petition against the Centre today and has urged the Court to take up the issue on April 2.

The Tamil Nadu government has made a decision to file a contempt petition in the Supreme Court on Saturday against the Centre for not constituting a Cauvery Management Board (CMB) to aid and supervise the sharing of the river water among the riparian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry. "In the absence of any cogent reasons for not constituting a Cauvery management board and a Cauvery water regulation committee within the time frame and/ or not making any substantial steps in that directions amount to wilful disobedience of the judgment of the Supreme Court", Tamil Nadu said.

S Muthukaruppan on Friday resigned from the membership of the Rajya Sabha over the Centre's negligence in forming the Cauvery Management Board (CMB).

The AIADMK government will mention the matter before the Supreme Court on Monday, advocate for Tamil Nadu government, Uma Pati said.

The opposition Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), meanwhile, has called for a meeting of all state political parties on Sunday to discuss the next course of action.

The DMK condemned the Central government for the "injustice" shown towards the backward class students in higher studies for medicine.

The Centre on Saturday filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking an extension of three months for implementing the apex court's February 16 order on sharing of Cauvery river water between three states and a Union territory.

Members of the Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi staged a protest in front of Ega Cinemas in Chennai, demanding the formation of Cauvery Water Management Board.

AIADMK cadre have also chose to observe a fast across the state on 2 April to urge the central government to form a CMB, ANI reported. "I appeal to party cadres, people and farmers to take part in the protest in huge numbers", OPS concluded.

The Supreme 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 AIADMK's decision to hold a hunger strike has come almost six weeks after the Supreme Court delivered its final verdict on the Cauvery issue.

Karnataka also contended that the Scheme contemplated in the Supreme Court judgment is a dispute resolution body as distinct from the management or regulation recommended by the tribunal.
