Cauvery dispute: 'Not in position' to release water, Siddaramaiah says Tamil Nadu

"How can we release water when storage levels in our reservoirs in the Cauvery river basin are low?"

The Supreme Court has announced that it will pronounce its verdict in the Cauvery water sharing dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka within four weeks, and the State is expecting a favourable ruling, Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said here on Saturday.

At least 1,686 police personnel in the state will be awarded with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister medal for their exemplary work in uniformed service. The affected states will also be invited, he said.

Reacting to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami's letter seeking release of Cauvery water, Siddaramaiah said, "We do not have water".

Rwanda called on China for more support and more expertise as it aims to become a middle-income country by 2020. Honoring a twenty-year tradition, China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi has an annual African appointment.

Water in the Mettur reservoir in Tamil Nadu was "grossly inadequate" to meet the irrigation needs of farmers to save their standing crops and to meet people's drinking water needs, Palaniswami said.

The CM stated that the water from Karnataka was required at the critical crop growth maturity stage, namely milky and dough stage. While replying to his TN counterpart's letter, CM Siddaramaiah made it clear that the southern state was not in a position to release Cauvery water.

Last week, the Supreme Court had indicated that it would deliver within a month its verdict on the decades-old Cauvery water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, saying enough confusion had been created on it for over two decades.

He pointed out that farmers in the state had lost their crops past year due to insufficient inflow into the reservoir.
