DMK to launch Cauvery March on Saturday

The DMK and its allies on Friday announced that they would organise Cauvery Rights Retrieval March from Tiruchirapalli to Cuddalore from Saturday in two phases.

Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader K Veeramani will launch both the phases.

The first phase of the march would start from Mukkombu in Tiruchirappalli district on Saturday, DMK working president M K Stalin said, after chairing a meeting of 'like-minded parties' on Cauvery issue.

The second phase from Ariyallur district will start on Monday (April 9) and the walks will culminate in a mega public rally in Cuddalore on April 16, Stalin said.

He said the DMK and other parties would discuss and decide on the next course of action if the central government does not set up Cauvery Management Board.

The meeting also stuck to its decision of showing black flags to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his scheduled visit to Chennai on April 12.
