- Karnataka supposed to release 44 tmc ft of water to Tamil Nadu from June 1 till Monday, but released only 2.2 tmc ft.
- Karnataka says Tamil Nadu has been pressuring for release of water but the reality is that they do not have enough water.
BENGALURU: Reacting to Tamil Nadu’s demand for the release of its share of Cauvery river water, Karnataka’s water resources minister M B Patil on Monday threw up his hands in despair stating: ” Rains have failed so far+ and the storage levels in the reservoirs are very low, we cannot produce water.”
The minister, however, maintained that the state government has not stopped the flow of water to Tamil Nadu. “We have been releasing around 30% of the inflow into our reservoirs,” he added.
