We will definitely appeal to the supervisory committee and appeal to the Supreme Court once again but I only appeal to people of Karnataka, people in Tamil Nadu to maintain peace and order," he added.

He further asked as to what is the relief when the Supreme Court has reduced water by cusec and extended by days.
