Karnataka to give 6,000 cusecs Cauvery Water to TN till Sept 27
The India’s Supreme court asked the Karnataka government and CMB to release additional 6,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu. Also, the Cauvery supervisory Committee ordered the Karnataka Government to release 3,000 cusecs of water from September 21 to 30 to Tamil Nadu. The Court also allows the objections about this report for Tamil Nadu and Karnataka within three days.
Early, the court ordered the Karnataka to release 15,000 cusecs of water a day for next 10 day on September 5. After the court modified it as 12,000 cusecs water till September 20 due the violence and protests in Karnataka against this SC order.
More than 50 numbers of Tamil Nadu registered buses, and other vehicles were fired on September 12, 2016.
Nariman is the advocate who represented for Karnataka over three years in the Cauvery water dispute. Also, he is the advocate for the Tami Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa in the case of disproportionate assets. Many of the people see this as a conflict of interest.

Some steps have to be taken by Karnataka so that the other State (Tamil Nadu) can exist as an entity. The principle of live and let live has to be applied to this dispute.”
