SC reserves order on Cauvery Management Board

Stalin greets Yeddy urges Kar to release Cauvery water to TN

The DMK, a key southern ally of the Congress, today termed Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Valas invite to the BJP to form government in the state "hasty" and "unconstitutional", and alleged that it would lead to horse-trading.

The apex court had slammed the central government for the "sheer contempt" of its orders by not framing a scheme to distribute Cauvery water among Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, and Puducherry. According to the Kerala government, the state gets 4% of the water and is expected to pay 15% of the cost towards the board. The top court also rejected these objections.

The SC bench did not heed submissions of senior advocate Shyam Divan, who was representing Karnataka, that finalisation of the draft Cauvery scheme be put on hold till the first week of July as the process of government formation was underway in the state. Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, told the court that the Union has modified the provision of the scheme that had empowered it to pass directions from time to time with regard to water distribution. The Supreme Court had earlier pulled up the Centre for failing to implement the court's order.

It is said that the decision for her to leave was on Doria's terms, as her new ambition is to set up her own practice. The BBC says "it is still very much Meghan Markle's wish that her father should be there on Saturday to support her".

The top court had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground. "The court can not wait till July as the first release of water from the Cauvery is scheduled in June", Naphade said.

Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have fought over the river for more than a century now. The court had also ordered setting up of the Cauvery Management Board to monitor the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu by Karnataka by March 30.
