Subsequently JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy too favoured bilateral talks to solve the issue.DMK working president M K Stalin on Monday batted for 'cordial ties' with the new government which will assume power in Karnataka and asked the AIADMK regime to work for a solution to the Cauvery issue through talks.
If farmers were not provided with water for irrigation, DMK would steer protests to get it, he said.
"Thalaivar (leader) Kalaignar fulfilled everything by establishing friendly ties with neighbouring States."
DMK, meanwhile, said its leader Stalin has been invited by the JDS top leadership to participate in the swearing-in ceremony of party leader Kumaraswamy as Karnataka Chief Minister on May 23.
"Through bilateral talks it is better to solve it, because there are some problems from both sides," he said and referred to farmers from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu facing a distress situation.
"We have to solve it, we have to live together, for that let us see, I am going to give full coperation to solve this problem amicably," he told reporters here.
Asked if the Supreme Court order on the Cauvery issue would be obeyed by his state, he said, "definitely everybody has to obey, not only my government."
He said for the last three years, all reservoirs were "empty in our state also," and due to that there was 'some problem between both states."
The JDS leader, who arrived at Tiruchirapalli on a visit to the Lord Ranganathaswamy temple at nearby Srirangam, said "I think Lord Ranga will give sufficient rainfall."
With copious showers, he hoped all reservoirs would be full and "then there is no problem between us.
