Cauvery row: SC directs Karnataka to release 6,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu within two days

Bengaluru: In a setback to the Karnataka government, the Supreme Court on Tuesday directed the state to release at least 6,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu for next two days.

The apex court has further asked the Attorney General to facilitate a meeting between executive heads of two states and the Centre to resolve the deadlock.

The SC told the Siddaramaiah-led government to release 6,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu on September 28-29 and warned against any disobedience, stating that ‘it won’t be a solution in a federal structure’.
