Tamil Nadu unilaterally decided to submit a memorandum to Center on Mekedatu issue
Tamilnadu, the all party meeting led by Chief Minister M.K. Stalin today has unilaterally resolved to present a memorandum to the Union Government on the Mekedatu issue.
The all party meeting passed three resolutions which reiterated to seek a legal remedy to prevent Karnataka from proceeding further to build the Mekedatu reservoir on Cauvery river.
The resolution at the all party meeting stated that the political parties in the State will stand in unison on the Mekedatu matter.
The resolution also stated that Karnataka should implement the Supreme Court judgement in sharing water and also discuss before taking any construction activity like building a reservoir which would hamper water supply to Tamilnadu.
Earlier speaking at the Meeting, the Chief Minister said that building a reservoir at Mekedatu which is set to store 67.16 TMC water capacity will certainly reduce water sharing for Tamilnadu.
Listing out the various steps taken by Tamilnadu on the Cauvery issue, Stalin said that it was time for all party members to take a unified stand since Cauvery water was the life line of lakhs of farmers living in the delta districts of the State.
