The DMK has convened an urgent meeting of its Executive Committee, an apex body, on March 30 to discuss the Cauvery issue amid strident demands by parties in Tamil Nadu that the Centre set up the water management board.
According to a statement issued by DMK General Secretary K.Anbazhagan , the Executive Council meeting will be chaired by Working President M.K. Stalin.
The meeting, to be held after the expiry of the Supreme Court’s deadline of March 29 to formulate a scheme, will see the party evolving a “stand for the state’s welfare,” after seeing the Centre’s response.
The six week deadline given by Supreme Court to the central government to set up the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) ends on March 29, but there is no concrete information from the Central government on setting it up.
Meanwhile, fisheries minister D Jayakumar said that two more days are left for Centre to meet the supreme court’s deadline in the Cauvery issue, and anything can happen before that.
“We will wait for three more days to decide our next step of action. But we believe something will happen before that,” he said.
