With just two days left for the deadline set by the Supreme Court, Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar on Monday urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to notify the proposed final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT).

“The most important development to be brought to your notice is that the tribunal has over-estimated the water requirement of TN based on the self-serving affidavits of Tamil Nadu, overlooking the objections of Karnataka,” Shettar said in a memorandum submitted to the PM.

The memorandum says that the latest assessment made by the team of Central Water Commission (CWC), under the direction of SC, ‘has exposed the incorrect claims of TN.’ “The PM said that they would study the issue and get back to us,” Shettar said after the meeting.
