Ministers to meet today to discuss SC order

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has convened a special meeting of the Council of Ministers on Tuesday to discuss the fallout of the modified order of the Supreme Court.

Monday’s order not only extends the number of days for which the state has to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, but also the  quantum. The order has resulted in widespread protests marred by arson in many districts.

The meeting of the Council of Ministers is scheduled to be held at 11 am in the Vidhana Soudha. It will take stock of the law and order situation in the state and the safety of
Kannada-speaking people in Tamil Nadu, officials sources said.

Sources in the chief minister’s secretariat said Siddaramaiah has invited a few senior leaders in the party including Mallikarjuna Kharge and Dharam Singh among others for breakfast on Tuesday to seek their advice on how the government should handle the present crisis. 

A senior officer in the secretariat has been told to compile information on how previous governments had handled the situation when the Supreme Court had directed the state to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.
