(MENAFN- AsiaNet News) In a social media post, Kumaraswamy expressed his outrage, stating that Karnataka's continuous setbacks in the Cauvery matter have now reached a critical point. He described the CWRC's order as nothing short of a "death sentence" for the Cauvery river and the people of Karnataka.
Kumaraswamy criticized the Congress government for failing to protect the interests of Kannadigas and for allowing Tamil Nadu to take advantage of Karnataka's missteps. He highlighted the stark contrast in priorities, with Karnataka seeking water for drinking purposes while Tamil Nadu pursues water for the Kuruvai crop, even in areas where cultivation is illegal.

He decried the lack of a strong stance from the government against such actions, suggesting that the government's allegiance to its partner party, DMK, has superseded the welfare of Karnataka. Kumaraswamy emphasized the need for immediate action by the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA) and Cauvery Water Control Committee (CWRC) to establish a "Difficulty Sharing Formula" to resolve these crises and warned against further water releases without such a formula in place.
