There is politics behind BJP asking for my resignation now and not during all-party meeting :CM Siddaramaiah

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that BJP and JDS are playing politics on the issue of Cauvery water to Tamilnadu.

He spoke to the media at Vidhana Soudha today.The CM questioned that the opposition parties,who are asking for his resignation now did not say so in the all-party meeting.

Protest is allowed

Responding to the call for Bengaluru bandh tomorrow and Karnataka bandh on day after tomorrow regarding Cauvery water,protest is allowed in a democratic system.He said that we are not going to suppress it.

Strong Argument will be put up

There is an order of the Supreme Court regarding the release of Cauvery water.It is argued that water cannot be released.

Our application was dismissed and an appeal challenging the orders of both the Cauvery Water Control Committee and the Management Authority has been filed.

The Supreme Court rejected our as well as Tamilnadu’s petition.Tamilnadu had asked for 24,000 cusecs of water.Later they asked for 7200 cusecs.

We cannot provide even 5000 cusecs water.We have argued about the scarcity of water,which the court did not accept.

He said that the hearing will come before the Supreme Court again on September 26,and our argument will be presented more strongly.
