Farmers in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, on Friday, partially buried themselves in sand on the banks of the Cauvery River, demanding that the Central Government create the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) at the earliest.
However, the court also decreased Tamil Nadu's share in the water, much to the dismay of the people of the state.
DMK and other opposition parties on Wednesday, took part in a 'road-roko' protest and called for a state-wide shut down over the Cauvery Management Board issue.
In the ruling, the top court reduced Tamil Nadu's share in the Cauvery water to 177.25 thousand million cubic feet.
