Farmers from Karnataka hold a candlelight vigil to protest the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu

<p>Farmers in the Mandya region of Karnataka have made a bold statement against the transfer of Cauvery waters to Tamil Nadu. They have started an all-night vigil in the vicinity of Srirangapatna and are lighting the darkness with candles. In response to the Cauvery Water Regulation Committee’s recommendation that Karnataka channel 5000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu for 15 days, an unorthodox protest was organized. Unusually, Independent MLA Darshan Puttanaiah, who is well-known for his association with the Congress, has lent his support to this occasion, according to reporter.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-154005″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-31t173307.635.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 2023 08 31t173307.635″ width=”1343″ height=”902″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-31t173307.635.jpg 274w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-31t173307.635-150×101.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1343px) 100vw, 1343px” title=”Farmers from Karnataka hold a candlelight vigil to protest the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu 6″></p>
<p>DK Shivakumar, the deputy chief minister, is getting ready to go to Delhi, the nation’s capital, today in order to investigate the complexities of the Cauvery water problem.</p>
<p>On the other hand, Tamil Nadu has pounded on the Supreme Court’s doors, pleading for its authoritative intervention to pressure Karnataka into opening the floodgates of the Cauvery River. Karnataka has responded by filing an affidavit in which it claims that the Tribunal’s direction was based on an incorrect assumption about the monsoon conditions that, in fact, was untrue.</p>
<p>Notably, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has emphasized the difficulty of producing the water and expressed worries that it would deplete the state’s reservoirs and cause an oncoming crisis of drinkable water.</p>
<p>DK Shivakumar had already planned his approach to his trip to Delhi. Friday is the planned hearing for Tamil Nadu’s appeal on the Cauvery water. He emphasized the state’s active engagement in the negotiations, noting that Karnataka’s offer was 3,000 cusecs while Tamil Nadu’s demand was somewhere between 24 and 25 TMC.</p>
<p>Shivakumar emphasized that he intended to represent the state’s situation in court in an effort to rebalance the water-sharing relationship with Tamil Nadu. He compared this endeavor to a protective covering protecting the state’s agricultural industry and its special interests. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have been engaged in a protracted dispute over the Cauvery River for many years. A crucial turning point in the history of their protracted conflict was reached in 1990 when the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal was established by the central government as a result of the tale.</p>
