D K Shivakumar misleading people about Cauvery water inflow: Bommai

Bengaluru, Oct 2 (IANS): Former Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday claimed that Deputy Chief Minister D.K. Shivakumar has been misleading the people about the inflow of water in the Cauvery river.

"Shivakumar had said that there had been a heavy inflow of water. However, when we got information from the authorities, they said that the inflow was around 2,000 cusecs of water.

"Why is Shivakumar misleading people? Why was he speaking so lightly on this serious issue? It was not enough for the Deputy CM to always talk about Brand Bangalore, but Cauvery water should be saved for Bangalore. Otherwise, it will be a 'bad Bangalore'," he said.

Earlier, speaking at an agitation organized by the Raitha Hitarakshana Samithi in Mandya on Monday, Bommai said that to find a permanent solution to the Cauvery water row, the Siddaramaiah-led state government must take the opinion of legal experts, activists, and opposition parties, and prepare a "distress formula" that is acceptable to all.

"The same formula must be presented before the Cauvery Water Management Authority and the Supreme Court," he said.

"Why does the Cauvery dispute arise again and again? Our struggle will be based on where the solution is. The Cauvery River originates and flows for the most part in our state. Although there is a small catchment area, the flow of water will be heavy. Tamil Nadu has two monsoons and is not short in water. They release excess water into the sea.

"Karnataka has built four dams to impound water, Tamil Nadu did not make much effort to save the Cauvery water and only two dams have been built," he added.

    Unemployed ex BJPigs now talking crap, Mr. Puppet Bomma you are now permanently EX CM - please take a break and enjoy your ill gotten wealth and let the present legally elected Government do their jobs, there is absolutely no doubt that Siddaramiah is a VERY competent CM ably assisted by DKS and their team of elected representatives. You were CM and Inspite of the so called Double Engine Government were not able to solve the Cauvery Issue.

    @ Bommai the lies will perish once the truth is hurled. The inflow of water into Harangi dam has increased to 3,000 cusec following bountiful showers in its catchment areas in Kodagu district. On Sunday, the inflow of water was 3,156 cusec. Read more at: https://www.deccanherald.com/india/karnataka/inflow-into-harangi-dam-increases-2708650 updated 02nd October 2023

    Cong is misleading, so says BJP leader, which has lost karnataka polls, on account of corruption, false promises and incompetence. There are no takers to what BJP leaders say. Indians overwhelmingly believe BJP is detrimental to growth and progress. Its just words and showmanship.
