CHENNAI: Welcoming the decision of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami to call on his Karnataka counterpart to seek release of water in Cauvery, DMK working president MK Stalin on Wednesday urged him to take an all-party delegation to Bengaluru to exert pressure on him.

Talking to reporters at Kolathur here, he said, “It is a welcome step, though it should have been done much earlier. I believe that it will be advantageous only if a delegation of leaders of all opposition parties and farmers associations is taken to prevail upon the Karnataka Chief Minister on the issue.” Moreover, Stalin urged the Chief Minister to take an all party delegation to New Delhi to meet the Prime Minister to prevail upon him over the matter.
