Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said that he had directed officials to release Cauvery water from the Krishnaraja Sagar reservoir into channels that would help the Mandya region farmers to tend to their paddy and sugarcane crops.  

He spoke to reporters at the opening of the Anjaneya Swamy Temple inaugural at Ramanagaram's Pete Kurubarahalli on Thursday.

The chief minister said that the water, which was required to be given to Tamil Nadu as per the Cauvery Tribunal's verdict, had already been released.

"It is not possible to wait for the Cauvery Mangement Board's order to release water into the channels. I will face whatever legal complications that may occur," the CM said.
