Yediyurappa slams Cong govt, says Cauvery water release order a ‘death sentence’ for K’taka

Bengaluru: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has said the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee’s (CWRC) order to release 3,000 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till October 15 is a “death sentence” for the state and slammed the Congress government for losing the trust of the people, especially farmers of the state.

“If the state government releases any more water to Tamil Nadu, it is a setback for the self-respect of the state. The situation has come in the backdrop of negligence of the state government with regard to the Cauvery issue,” he added.

The move of the state government to test the patience of the farmers of the state amid the drought situation is “incorrect”, Yediyurappa said.

Meanwhile, reacting to the order announced by CWRC, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that he will discuss the matter with his legal team.

Further decisions on the Cauvery issue will be taken after discussion, he added.

The order will be questioned before the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA), said Mahesh, the Managing Director of Cauvery Water Board.

“The matter may come up in CWMA tomorrow or day after, the order will be questioned, he added.
