Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) corporators broke silence over Cauvery water dispute and staged a protest march from Kote Anjaneya temple to DC office by wearing black ribbon and submitted a memorandum to the Additional Deputy Commissioner Venkatesh, on Friday.
As many as 70 corporators, accompanied by Cauvery Kriya Samithi, led the protest against Supreme Court verdict on releasing water to Tamil Nadu.
Corporators, who were on march to the DC office, were disappointed with Deputy Commissioner D Randeep as he was unavailable at the office. The corporators felt that it was the duty of the DC to listen to the grievances. He has showed disrespect to the people’s representatives through this act, this is very disgraceful.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mayor B L Bhyrappa said that the Supreme Court directive to release 6,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu is unscientific. “State government in accordance with the cabinet meeting has decided not to release water to TN. We support the decision of the state government and are ready to face any kind of challenges. We also appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and solve the issue soon.”
