"Former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa waged legal battles to protect the interests of the farmers of Tamil Nadu with regard to the Cauvery water dispute", he said. "But on 9.1.2018, only 111.647 tmc ft of water has been realized at Billigundulu against the 179.871 tmc ft due by that date...", the letter stated. How can we supply to them?

"I hope the Tamil Nadu government will understand the ground reality as Karnataka has not received sufficient rainfall for the past several years", he said.
