The Congress and JD(S) members fought over Cauvery issue in the Assembly on Thursday.

While JD(S) floor leader HD Revanna accused the Centre of showing keen interest in issuing notification on the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal, the Congress accused JD(S) of trying to reap political benefit by pointing fingers at the Centre.

It all started with Revanna raising the issue when the house assembled after the lunch break. Revanna informed the house that the Union Law Department has cleared the draft notification  and sent it to the Union Water Resources Ministry for publication. 

“I want to know what the government is doing in this regard. Both the state and the Central governments are doing injustice to the farmers of the Cauvery basin,” he added. Opposition leader Siddaramaiah took serious exception to Revanna for dragging the Centre and accused him of politicising the issue. TB Jayachandra said, “This kind of mudslinging will not help the state’s case. I know you (Revanna) are making such statements keeping an eye on the coming elections. But the JD(S) will not benefit by this.”
