Prime News, State, (Bengaluru), April 6:-Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday urged the union government not to heed to the demands of Tamil Nadu Government over the demand for formation of Cauvery Water Management Board.
Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, he said the TN government was bringing pressure on the Centre to set up the Board but the Supreme Court in its final order had dwelt with formation of only a ‘scheme’. ‘’Scheme do not mean a Board but to form a ‘method’ to follow the orders of the apex court. The Union government has to be true to the meaning of the order of the Supreme Court, he added.
Meanwhile, Siddaramaiah said JD(S) and BJP state presidents H D Kumaraswamy and B S Yeddyurappa, respectively, had challenged him to win from Chamundeshwari segment from where he is contesting the next election.
‘’This only shows that the two leaders – BJP and JD(S) have joined hands. They were together before. But both of them will lose this time as people of Karnataka have rejected their type of politics.
‘’JD(S) supremo Mr H D Devegowda and these two leaders always target me. Gowda has also petitioned EC with a complaint against me. But this will not affect the fortunes of Congress or me winning with a clear margin from Chamundeshwari,’’ CM asserted.
