DMK-led opposition form human chain across TN for Cauvery

Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and other parties protested against Cauvery issue in Tamil Nadu’s Chennai on Monday, by forming human chain across the state.
The human chain agitation was held in line with the decision taken at the DMK-sponsored all party meeting, which urged the State government to take legal measures to ensure formation of the CMB and the CWRC.
“While the Central government has filed a petition seeking clarification on the scheme, the State government remained a silent spectator in a bid to remain in power”, it said.
It added that the human chain agiation was to condemn the State government and mount more pressure on the Centre to
for the CMB and the CWRC as per the Apex court order and that of the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal which was notified in the Central government gazette.
The party workers formed a human chain and held placards demanding constitution of Cauvery Management Board. Earlier, the DMK staged protests and rally demanding the Board.
On 16 February, the Supreme Court asked the Centre to form the Cauvery Management Board to implement a formula for sharing of water between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
