Cauvery Row: Protests Intensify In Mandya Following Panel Order | Mysuru News – Times of India

4 minutes, 31 seconds Read

Mandya: Various organisations continue their protests in the sugar town of Mandya against the release of Cauvery River water to Tamil Nadu.
A day after the Karnataka bandh, the protesters took to the streets to express their anguish over the order of the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee (CWRC) to release 3,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu for the next 15 days.
The protesters assembled in front of Sir M Visvesvaraya Statue on the old Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway holding coconut shells in their hands and flowers placed on their ears and raised slogans against the state government and CWRC. Former minister CS Puttaraju, former MLA JB Shivakumar, and others were present.
Protests were also held at Malavalli under the leadership of former MLA Annadani during which the protesters drew their own blood using syringes and then poured it into Cauvery River demanding the immediate stoppage of release of water to Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, the protesters, who undertook a bike rally, were stopped near Sathegala, located on the border of Chamarajanagar, by police who prevented them from shedding blood into Cauvery River. Police tried to convince the protesters but the latter, who were adamant, picked up a wordy duel stating that when the authorities are already releasing water why are police stopping them from giving their blood?
Meanwhile, the members of Bhoomi Thaayi Horata Samithi also held a protest rally holding whips at Srirangapatna.
Speaking to STOI, Mandya Zilla Raitha Hitarakshana Samiti organizing secretary Sunanda Jayaram said, “It is certain that the state government will release water to Tamil Nadu. The intention of the state was very much clear when chief minister Siddaramaiah did not give a clear answer to the media with respect to the stoppage of water to Tamil Nadu. Even the water resources minister and deputy CM DK Shivakumar said that Cauvery water belongs to south India,” she said.
Sunanda Jayaram said the samithi has decided to continue the dharna in Mandya to pressurize the government to stop the release of water. “We have also decided to ban the elected representatives of Congress from the protest venue,” she said.
