Cauvery Farmers Protection Committee members staged a protest against the Union government notification of the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal.

KRRS activists, led by K S Puttanniah, staged a protest at Sanjay Circle and threatened to intensify the agitation as the water level has reduced to 76 feet as against 124.8 feet.

In a emergency meeting of Cauvery Farmers Protection Committee, its chairman and former MP Made Gowda said they will meet Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar and others to discus the implication on the farmers.

The committee has decided to convene a meeting with former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, former chief minister S M Krishna, Opposition leader Siddaramaiah and leaders of Cauvery basin at the Legislators Home.

It would hold talks with irrigation and legal experts on filing a review petition in the Supreme Court. They also demanded speedy completion of modernisation of Visveswaraya irrigation canal by June.
