Cauvery Issue: Kamal Haasan Accused the Tamil Nadu Government

Share

The sharing of Cauvery River Water has been the point of contention between the two states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Karnataka has to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu on a monthly basis proportionate to the monthly figures indicated for a normal year. But, Tamil Nadu received less than its share of Cauvery water during the crucial four months – June to September – in 18 out of 27 years, since the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) reconsidered Tamil Nadu’s plea and gave its interim order on 25 June 1991.

In Tamil Nadu, the farmers were receiving overwhelming support for an implementation mechanism on the Tribunal’s final order, which now stands modified by the Supreme Court marginally about allocations to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

On Wednesday, the actor turned Politician Kamal Haasan, has amped up the campaign against Tamil Nadu government and the centre for sitting tight on the Supreme Court’s verdict. He told that the State Government is the responsibility of constituting the Cauvery management board (CMB) rested with the Centre, but it “cannot hallucinate” that it has fulfilled its duty towards the people by just filing a contempt petition before the Supreme Court or by holding a farcical one-day hunger strike. He said,

“It is a political game. It is obvious,” Mr. Haasan told NDTV on his way to Tiruchirapalli, also known as Trichy where he will address a huge public meeting later on Wednesday evening. But then, he said, this was something that people of Tamil Nadu were aware of. “But as a new party’s founder, I will have to reiterate it,”

Makkal Needhi Maiam leader Kamal Haasan said that Tamil Nadu had been denied its rights and “somebody” was blocking the state from receiving justice just when it was so close to. “It (Justice) is at our doorstep, and now it is being delayed. Just when we were all set to celebrate,” he said.

In February, the Supreme Court reduced Tamil Nadu’s share of Cauvery river water and said Karnataka would receive a major share of water, which would benefit cities like its capital Bengaluru.

Many Tamil Nadu leaders had reconciled to the Supreme Court judgment, telling farmers that the state would still gain if the Cauvery Management Board, to be set up on the court’s orders, ensures that Tamil Nadu gets this lower allocation too.

The 765-km-long Cauvery river originates in Kodagu district in southern Karnataka and flows into Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Puducherry. This flow is considered as a lifeline for Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

But the central government did not set up the management board till the deadline expired and later filed a clarification in the supreme court. This has exposed AIADMK leaders, who had showered praises on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a late CM Jayalalithaa’s birth anniversary in February.

Makkal Neethi Maiam Leader’s campaign on Wednesday only means more trouble. The day after, the DMK has already called for a shut down across the state.

All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) party leader and Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami along with O Panneerselvam appeared to uphold themselves for the fresh round of attacks by joining party leaders at a token, day-long hunger strike in state capital Chennai.
