Cauvery belongs to us also, we have all rights: AIADMK

Updated: Sep 13, 2016 10:05 IST
Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Sept. 13 (ANI): The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Tuesday said the state of Tamil Nadu has all the right on Cauvery River as it also belongs to them, adding that the Supreme Court has given its first directive on the issue and made it clear that Karnataka Government must oblige to it.

Talking to ANI, AIADMK spokesperson C. R. Saraswathi said that the Congress government cannot control the state and the people.

"The matter has gone to the court and the Supreme Court has said that Karnataka must oblige and they must give water to Tamil Nadu and Cauvery belongs to us also. It is not written that it belongs to Karnataka, it belongs to us too. We have all the rights," Saraswathi told ANI here.

"Two days back a Tamil Nadu boy was hit by Karnataka people, it has come in all channels, everyone is watching all over. What is honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka doing? Till today he has written to our honourable Chief Minister that he will take action. He has not arrested those people till today. As a Chief Minister he has taken action immediately then it would have been in control. Everyone knows that they don't want to give water so they are creating problems," she added.

Meanwhile, the pro-Kannada activists continued their protest in Mandya, Karnataka over the Cauvery water sharing row with Tamil Nadu.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday assured full assistance to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka Governments to deal with the current state of violence that is prevailing in both the states over the Cauvery water issue.

Singh has assured assistance to both Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to tackle the present state of unrest.

In wake of the protests erupting over the Cauvery issue, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has written to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, requesting him to ensure safety and security of Tamilians residing in Karnataka.

With protests escalating in the wake of Cauvery water dispute that escalated between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, the Bengaluru Police yesterday imposed Section 144 of the CRPC, meaning that no more than five people will be allowed to gather in public places in the city.

The protesters targeted vehicles bearing Tamil Nadu registration numbers and set them on fire. They also vandalised trucks near Hubli bypass in Karnataka.

Siddaramaiah has also appealed for peace and has written to his counterpart in Tamil Nadu, urging her to ensure the safety of Kannada speaking people living in the state. He also urged the Tamil Nadu authorities to take action against those indulging in violence.

Modifying its September 5 order, the apex court yesterday asked the Karnataka Government to release to release 12,000 cusecs of Cauvery River water every day to Tamil Nadu till September 20.

It had earlier directed the Karnataka Government to release of 15,000 cusecs of water for 10 days as immediate relief to farmers in Tamil Nadu.

The Hyderabad Police had earlier issued an advisory to all cable TV channels/cable TV network operators over protests in Bangaluru and said no program shall be transmitted in the cable service which is likely to incite violence or contains anything against maintenance of law and order. (ANI)
