The decision of Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal is a major setback to people of Karnataka. The state government should call for a two-day emergency Assembly session to discuss the future course of action to be taken by the government, said Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha President, MLA K S Puttannaiah, here on Friday.
Speaking to press persons, he said that the interim order by the court will affect the people of north Karnataka to a large extent. “In most of the cases, the final verdict will go on the lines of interim order. Hence, the state government should be proactive and convince Prime Minister Narendra Modi to get justice to the state. The state must be ready to wage legal battle against it,” he added.
The desperate voice of the people of north Karnataka has not reached the state MPs. Karnataka has many Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members and the current situation is a mirror to the irresponsibility of these people’s representatives. They should realise their responsibilities and urge PM Modi to get justice to the state.
Further Puttannaiah said that when injustice happens, protest by the farmers is natural and they also turn violent at times. But the way police have behaved is highly condemnable.
