New Delhi, [India] Mar. 09 (ANI): Members of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Friday staged a protest in front of Parliament in connection with the formation of Cauvery Management Board (CMB) on Friday.
The Supreme Court on February 16 had ordered the Central Government to set up the CMB and the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee within six weeks.
Earlier, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president MK Stalin had met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and put forward a proposal of mass resignation of all state MPs from the Union Cabinet to stress this point to the Centre.
The Cauvery tribunal recommended that the Cauvery management be modelled after Bhakra Beas Management Board by the Centre unless an appropriate mechanism comes to place.
The apex court had reduced Tamil Nadu's share in the Cauvery water to 177.25 thousand million cubic feet, down from 192 TMC allocated by a tribunal in 2007. (ANI)
