Cauvery row: Actors stage protest in Chennai; Rajinikanth upset with IPL

Cauvery farmers protest

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it had considered the award of Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal while deciding the water share of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, and Puducherry in its judgement.

Rajini said that people of the country have their rights to do their job in any state and it was wrong to make this into a political issue. On Sunday, it was the turn of the Tamil film industry to protest, and actors-turned-politicians Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan extended their support to the cause. "I implore the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) players to at least sport black bands over the issue".

The central government was reprimanded by the Supreme Court today for ignoring its orders on the River Cauvery, which ask for more water to be given to Karnataka.

While Karnataka had its own ambitions and in drought years where in water level in Cauvery was not much, it found the water which emerged on its land and flowed through a major part hard to share it with Tamil Nadu as per the old pacts.

The apex court granted six weeks time to the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance of its 465-page judgement, which modified the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal award. That is why we want you to frame the scheme.

"You have to frame the scheme and there is no escaping this task", the Supreme Court told the Centre on Monday.

Extensive protests have been taking place across Tamil Nadu as well as by the state's MPs in New Delhi during the recently concluded Parliament Session, demanding the immediate establishment of the Cauvery Management Board as ordered by the Supreme Court. Last week, the Centre requested a three-month extension which was not granted by the apex court. It has indicated that the scheme to be proposed might not include the formation of a CMB. There are protests that are going on regarding this issue. Tamil Nadu political leaders say the BJP is acting in favour of Karnataka, which is opposed to the CMB and where Assembly elections are due.

Appearing for Tamil Nadu, senior counsel Shekhar Naphade told the court that "your order was so clear that even a person having an elementary knowledge of English could understand it". "IPL-2018 matches in Chennai will be held as per the schedule".
