Stalin launches walk for Cauvery

CHENNAI, DHNS: DMK working president M K Stalin on Saturday launched his 190-km Cauvery Rights Retrieval Walk from Tiruchirapalli to Cuddalore through the Delta region demanding immediate constitution of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB).

Dravidar Kazhagam president K Veeramani flagged off the walk that will pass through the Cauvery Delta region and reach Cuddalore by April 16.

Separately, another batch of party workers will begin their walk from Ariyalur on Monday.

The walk is part of DMK's strategy to pressurise the Union government not to delay the process of constituting the CMB as per the Supreme Court directive.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami met senior counsel Shekhar Naphade, who is representing Tamil Nadu in the Cauvery case in Supreme Court, and discussed the arguments to be put forth in the Apex Court on Monday.

Palaniswami, sources said, told Naphade that he should argue in such a way that the Centre's clarification petition should be dismissed at the early state.

The meeting also came a day before Tamil actors, including Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, are set to hold protest in Chennai.
