The Cauvery water dispute is a complicated legal issue between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and the apex court would go by the agreement between the two states, said president of the 79th All India Kannada Sahitya Sammelana Ko Channabasappa.

 At an interaction programme here on Sunday, he said that unless there is give and take on the part of both states, the water problem would remain an emotive issue. He said that political leaders and the intelligentsia should pool their efforts to resolve it. Drastic and violent steps would create more bad blood between the states, he added.

He regretted that the infrastructure in Kannada school is abysmal. Why should one blame parents if they shell out thousands of rupees to get their words in good schools even if it is an English medium school. The focus should be on improving the condition in such schools, he added.

On the demand for division of the state, he said it is because of the uneven development and some people might be just giving vent to their feelings. The state government should concentrate on all-round development of all regions, he added.
