Centre should ensure that TN gets its due share: CPI

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore: Despite curtailment of share of Cauvery water, Tamil Nadu has accepted the Supreme Court verdict and the ball is now in Centre’s court to ensure its implementation and see to it that due quantum is released to the State, veteran CPI leader, D Pandian said today.

Responding to a query on the issue, Pandian told reporters here that the State and the people, with due respect to the Court, have accepted the ruling.

However, it was the responsibility of the BJP-led Centre to see to it that Karnataka was adhering to the verdict and releasing the water. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, who is speaking about Digital India, has to monitor the water release with digital technology, Pandian said adding that the Centre, which has failed to constitute Cauvery Management Board should not sit on the verdict but take steps to release the water to Tamil Nadu.

When asked about the confession of Deputy chief Minister, O Paneerselvam that he joined Edapadi K Palanisamy’s camp after Modi asked him to do so Pandian quipped. “when he himself has said that what is there for me to say?”
