Cauvery row: protest enters day 24

The indefinite stir staged by a pro-Kannada organisation demanding release of water from KRS dam to canals entered its 24th day on Sunday.

Hundreds of women from Valegarahalli participated in the protest on Sunday and vent their ire by burning effigies of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Water Resources Minister M B Patil.

Forum’s district unit president V C Umashankar said that the district administration has promised to release water to Visvesvaraya canal on August 2. He warned that if the authorities fail to release water, the protests will be intensified further.
