Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that it is very difficult to implement the Supreme Court order, directing the state to release 6000 cusecs of water every day to Tamil Nadu till September 27.

“Since we do not have water, it is very difficult to implement. It is an unimplementable order,” Siddaramaiah told news agency ANI.

Earlier today, the apex court, after taking stock of ground realities, directed Karnataka to release water every day to Tamil Nadu. A bench led by Justice Dipak Misra also ordered the Central Government to notify and constitute a Cauvery Management Board within four weeks.

The court also gave both parties three days time to submit their objections to the Cauvery Supervisory Committee report. The Supervisory Committee report directed Karnataka to release 3000 cusecs of water every day from September 21 till the end of the month. The report sparked protests in Karnataka and security has been heightened in sensitive areas to avoid a repeat of violent incidents.

      It is in interest of both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and nation as w our Judiciary must look ground level situation through non-Political experts and take decision accordingly.If there is no sufficient water in Kaveri rever then how one can demand and release of water further whatever water being release will never reach destination at least 60% of it due leakage and theft of water while proceeding to destination.Why not Judiciary order centre and states for connecting all rivers to avoid flood or otherwise. situation.

        For defying the Supreme court orders there is no punishment, if it was in some country like America the w Police department will be implementing this order with a iron fist. Indian courts cannot function independently, it clearly shows the weakness in the system and lack of honor or respect for the law of the land. Siddaramiah should be put in PRISON for paying people to burn buses and create a law and order challenge. When the CM has no honesty then the police and public also take advantage of the situation.

          This is a plot by BJP and central government to topple congress government. Anyone with any sense won't give away water to others if there is no water for ourselves.

            SC judges incompetence, Jayabalithas arrogance and Modis indifferance has already cost 2 lives, heavy property damage and loss of livelihood of hundreds. If Karnataka releases any more water, there will be more deaths from lack of drinking water.

                The root of the problem is two things, lt;br/gt;1. One state thinks carvery belongs to them and dont recognize they have no choice to share even if 1 crumb equally.lt;br/gt;2. The agitators have smartly done fear mongering that there won't be any water for Bangalore to gain m for their cause.lt;br/gt;Most so called north Indians commenting neutrally are living in Bangalore and are driven by the same ulterior motives.lt;br/gt; If today a statement is made that no risk of water shortage to Bangalore, this craziness of we will call names at everyone who does not take our view will fizzle out.lt;br/gt;I work in a IT major in the US and already hyd as a alternate center has taken shape for new role staffing, but being done in a subtle way. So do what you do without harming your golden egg laying duck.

                  Lately I have observed that the Hon.Supreme Courts have been whimsical. One example ordering of banning diesel cars over 20 hp in Delhi and then revising the order. There are some other examples too.
