BJP wants to set up the Cauvery Management Board, LG asserts

Cauvery row Siddaramaiah convenes meeting at New Delhi on Friday

However, the apex court's verdict decreased Tamil Nadu's share in the water body, much to the dismay of the people of the state.

The Supreme Court, delivering the final verdict on appeals against the Tribunal order of 2007, had ordered last month that the Centre frame a "scheme" within six weeks to implement the modified Tribunal award which allocated 14.75 TMC more to Karnataka.

The DMK's allies, including the Congress, supported the resolution. DMK members are ready to resign.

"We boycotted the budget session to draw the state government's attention on this", Stalin said, adding that the prime minister is "not willing to meet all party leaders on the issue" and "the situation is very delicate".

Speaking to reporters, Stalin said DMK legislators wore black shirts as a mark of protest on the inaction in setting up CMB and the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee (CWRC) as directed by the Supreme Court on February 16.

Kerala and Puducherry are the other stakeholders.

Later, the Chief Minister who had recently submitted a memorandum to Modi urging the constitution of the Cauvery panels, recounted the decades old Cauvery dispute and capped it with the current developments. "State BJP is fully in agreement with the general perception that setting up the Board is an inevitable solution to the river-water sharing row with Karnataka", he said. "Karnataka has never released the quantum as prescribed in the interim nor final award of the tribunal".

However, Bitcoin lost about 10% in a single day and plummeted by as much as 40% from its January, 2018 prices. Bitcoin , Ethereum, and all other major cryptocurrencies are continuing their downward slide.

Recalling the February 16 verdict of the Supreme Court, the resolution insisted that the Centre set up the CMB and the CWRC within six weeks.

On Thursday, Palaniswami, in his letter addressed to Modi, said: "As per the Section 62 (A) of the Inter-State River Water Disputes Act, 1956, a "scheme" is nothing but the machinery for the implementation of the final order of the tribunal".

On 8 March, a day before Central Water Resources Secretary UP Singh had called the representatives of four states to talk about CMB, Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah headed an all-party meet in Bengaluru to establish Karnataka's stand on the issue.

Following the verdict, Tamil Nadu government has been demanding that the Centre immediately constitute the CMB and CWRC.

"Hence, I request you to direct the Water Resources Ministry, to notify the formation of Cauvery Management Board and the Cauvery Water Regulation Committee and enable them to function effectively", he said.

The Chief Minister said he looked forward to the Prime Minister's "immediate positive" response in this matter.
