The long-lasting ‘Cauvery Water Board’ inception has witnessed a number of agitations by political parties and farmer groups demanding immediate action in setting up the Cauvery Management Board as directed by the Supreme Court.
The actor turned politician Kamal Hassan, who started his own political party namely ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’, has also joined the protests ignoring his rival parties and enmity with others and got miffed with IPL of BCCI’s decision to conduct the game in Chennai.
Establishing ‘Cauvery Water Board’ has become a burning issue. Businesses are shutting down against government’s delay in setting the Cauvery Board. Supreme Court verdict has clearly asked the centre to form the Cauvery Management Board. But the centre is delaying it: Rajinikanth said.
The Thalaivar – Rajinikanth in his own words addressed and warned the government, “We are not here protesting for someone who has 500 acres of land, we are here to protest for those farmers who have sometimes even less than an acre of land. Please show them as the faces of protests show people their tears and even Karnataka will see their grief.”
Rajinikanth took on The ‘Prime Minister’ also and said, “NAMO needs to expedite the Cauvery Management Board. If the board is not constituted, the centre will face the wrath of the people of Tamil Nadu”
Talking to media Thalaivar expressed his wrath and questioned the priority between help solving the scanty of drinking water of people or IPL.
