All-party meet once

 While replying to a question by the Opposition in the Council on Wednesday, the CM added that there was no room for politicisation of inter-state issues such as water, language and boundaries.

Joining the issue, Water Resources Minister Basavaraj Bommai said an all-party delegation will be taken to New Delhi to pressure the prime minister direct Tamil Nadu to stop execution of the  Hogenkkal project.

Responding to a question JD(S) member Abdul Azeem, Bommai said the CM has already requested PM to put a stop on Tamil Nadu’s Hogenkkal plans. The State’s objective was to have a joint survey and had also discussed the issue with the Union minister for Water Supply and Tamil Nadu’s irrigation minister.

When Leader of the Opposition V S Ugrappa demanded the government to give the status of the Cauvery dispute, Bommai first floundered but later said the state has filed a review petition before the tribunal and also a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court. The Minister also said the state government will have to resort to legal recourse if TN insists on going ahead with the project.
