Cauvery water dispute: DMK working president MK Stalin slams draft scheme

MK Stalin accused PM Modi over Karnataka elections

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra would examine the scheme to ensure smooth water distribution among the four southern riparian states.

The court turned down Karnataka's plea that the hearing in the Cauvery dispute be adjourned till the first week of July since there is no proper elected government in the state after the Assembly elections.

The court has reserved its order on the draft plan and the overall distribution. The Centre has ignored the directive given in the Cauvery Tribunal's final award that the CMB should be an independent body. The Apex court also directed the Centre to file a modified scheme on Cauvery River management before it on Thursday.

With regard to a clause that stated the Centre could issue instructions from time to time, the SC asked the Centre to clarify that it referred to the functioning of the scheme and not the sharing of the river water.

The CMB would be headquartered in Delhi while the office of the regulatory authority would be in Bengaluru.

"All of us saw how Prime Minister Narendra Modi misused the office of Governor in Tamil Nadu".

The top court had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground.
