Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has called for an all-party meeting on Saturday to discuss the Supreme Court directive to the state, asking it to obey its order to release 6,000 cusecs of water from the Cauvery to Tamil Nadu for three days.
Siddaramaiah has called for a meeting of leaders of both houses of the state legislature, MPs, central ministers representing the state and ministers from the Cauvery basin to discuss the water issue. He had said on Friday that the Centre needed to play a “greater and more proactive” role on water-related issues, especially when it came to resolving inter-state disputes.
However, the chief minister stopped short of supporting suggestions that the subject of water needed to be moved to the Concurrent list from the State list, where it is now. “I have not given adequate thought to these kind of suggestions,” he had said.

In the meantime, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday said if “they (SC) keep on passing non-implementable orders, it will be very difficult to maintain law and order in the country.”
At an all-party meeting conducted earlier this week, the government had received mixed suggestions on releasing water to Tamil Nadu, with some saying that Karnataka could comply with the court’s September 20 ruling as storage in Cauvery basin has improved from 27 TMC feet to 31 TMC feet following rainfall in catchment areas.
