Jaya-Shettar meet on Cauvery today
Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa and her Karnataka counterpart Jagadish Shettar will meet here on Thursday to discuss the long-standing Cauvery water dispute.
The Tamil Nadu leader will arrive with a 10-member delegation and the meeting is scheduled to take place at the Leela Palace hotel at 3pm, said reports.
The meeting comes in the wake of the Supreme Court's Monday direction asking both the chief ministers to meet and attempt to solve the problem in the larger interest of the farmers of both states.
The last time such a meeting took place was in 1997, in Chennai, when M Karunanidhi and JH Patel met to discuss the issue.
