Mysuru, May 30:- Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Sene staged a protest on Wednesday, condemning the order from Cauvery Water Management Board to release 9.19 TMC of water to Tamil Nadu from KRS.
The protesters, who had gathered near the district court, said that the reservoirs in Karnataka don’t have enough water to fulfil the demand locally. “Given this scenario, how can the water be released to Tamil Nadu?” They said the instruction of the board is unscientific and unjust. They urged the state government not to release water and asked the central government to intervene and solve the issue.
Badagalapura Nagendra, Hosuru Kumar, Hosakote Basavaraj, Puneeth and others were present. (MR/KS).
