In Karnataka and Tamil Nadu all people would be glued to the proceedings in the Supreme Court which will hear the Cauvery issue at 2 pm on Tuesday. With Karnataka resolving to release water only for its drinking needs, a confrontation is expected in the Supreme Court. Tamil Nadu which wants Karnataka to be held in contempt has also requested the court not to hear the modification plea.

Karnataka had sought modification of the court’s order while stating that it would not release water now, but will do so in December. Meanwhile in Bengaluru and the rest of the Cauvery basin, there is Section 144 Cr. PC or prohibitory orders in place. However, normal life will not be affected the police say as all arrangements have been made.(ONE INDIA,2016)
