Obey CRA orders, says MK
Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M Karunanidhi today said the Cauvery Basin States should obey the directions of the Cauvery River Water Authority (CRA) created by them with the help of the Union Government.
Responding to a question, Mr Karunanidhi said the CRA was created by the States where the river flowed.
The Cauvery Basin States had agreed to obey the directions of the CRA even when the body was created.
This understanding should not be violated without adequate or just reason, he said.
Stating he did not wish to blame either Karnataka or Tamil Nadu in the matter, Mr Karunanidhi said there should be friendly relations between the two and no unncessary issues should come up between them.
