"There is no water at our reservoirs, I have not yet seen the order copy. I will speak to the advocates after going through the order copy," he said.
The apex court on Tuesday retained its direction to Karnataka
to release 2,000 cusecs of Cauvery
water per day to Tamil Nadu
till further orders and asked the two governments to ensure peace and harmony, saying citizens should not become law unto themselves.
"We intend to first adjudicate the issue of maintainability of appeals filed by Karnataka, Tamil Nadu
and Kerala. At this juncture, the interim order dated October 4 directing Karnataka
to release 2,000 cusecs of water per day to Tamil Nadu
will continue till further orders," the bench comprising of Justices Dipak Misra, Amitava Roy and AM Khanwilkar said.
Made Gowda, President of Mandya Zilla Raitha Hitharakshana Samiti (MZRHS), which is spearheading the Cauvery
agitation in Mandya, said, "We should maintain peace until tomorrow's hearing."
"The court might have asked us to release 2,000 cusecs of water to test Karnataka
government's patience....If they again ask us to release water tomorrow, we can reject it. There is no dharma in leaving water to them for crops, when we don't have it even for drinking," he added.
