    Thank you Jaya Madam for no drinking water in Bengaluru... :rolleyes: . If Congress Party in Delhi is thinking Karnataka is going to fall in their lap please be advised senior Congress leader Siddaramiah was made to leave yesterday the farmers rally in Mandya by angry villagers in which he tried to sit to sit on the dias.

    Bangalore may not get water from Dec

    A photo shared by my friend a couple of weeks back of what used to be a lake.

    This is about a hour's drive from the outskirts of Bangalore. And we have more than 8 months for the next rainy season.

    Maybe, for a change, Bangaloreans will get to experience the kind of distress experienced only by our farmers so far! The well-to-do will have their mineral water but what about the rest? This summer is indeed going to rock the Bangaloreans!

    Karnataka might get some good rains in the Northeast Monsoon so the situation might not remain so grim.

    Interior Karnataka gets 20% of their quota from Northeast monsoon.

    Coastal Karnataka gets 100% from Southwest Monsoon

    Why blame Jaya for doing her duty ~ taking care of interests of Tamil farmers ? She was elected to do that. Please stop the blame game and potraying as if TN is responsible for the distress in KA or us Tamils as some water thieves whose hunger gets satiated by seeing Karnataka people suffering. I sympathize with the plight of the Karnataka farmers too, but the Tamil farmers are not faring any better either.

    Moreover why plan additional facilities to the tune of extra 500 mld when KA very well knows of its commitments to TN ?

    The overwhelming feeling is this around here. Before independence KA farmers had no option to protest against the British. After independence, KA farmers were told that they could not utilize the river like TN does, so as to not put TN farmers in distress, who already had irrigated their lands under the British. An artificial barrier (and not by Nature) has been raised against the KA farmers. And the thing that rubs in the worst is the total lack of recognition amongst Tamilians that their agriculture is built on the despair of the farmers upstream!


    Why!? Because not just Tamilians.... even other humans need drinking water to survive you know! :truestory:

    Now the feeling among the farmers is that nobody cares for them. Not the state nor the center. Most Bangaloreans would be too busy to care. So I guess all these threats to stop water supply to Bangalore is one desperate measure by those hapless folks to try to make people care for their plights.

    Karnataka as a whole gets less than 1% of its annual rainfall from North East monsoons. TN receives around half of its annual monsoons from Northeast monsoons, I think. Only the Eastern portions of the Southern interior Karnataka get parts of their rainfall from Northeast monsoons.

    Karnataka is suffering due to electing national parties. When SM Krishna was CM also monsoons failed and Delhi leaders forced inquitable sharing on Karnataka. This time I believe Jagadisg Shettar has been restrained by central BJP leaders to not disobey SC orders.

    Well every time there is an issue it's always the Tamils who feel agreieved and want it all. Water from Kerala even if the dam is weak as they claim, or water from Karnataka or be it Sri Lankan Tamils! It's mein mein mein.

    Bull F*&#ing sh#t,

    Don't talk about issues that you don't know squat about. The water is not Karnataka's property, this is about the same amount of water that would have reached TN if there was no dam to begin with, and that's all the SC has ordered Karnataka to give.

    Ever wonder why SC has sided with TN on both the Kerela Dam and the cauvery, its because what TN asked was just. Unless you're more knowledged than the SC, Mullaiperiyar is safe and when it becomes otherwise I'm sure the courts would allow a new dam to be built.

    The lake in front of my house is drying up too. Never seen the bed in the last two years.

    Only a Hurricane will save Bangalore.

    What Yusuf said is true. TN always plays the victim card.

    Anyway, it is true that this amount of water would have reached TN, but only during the rainy season.

    The problem is the SW monsoon has not retreated to South India. It's headed west.

    Water is the state Subject~
    So, its the Inter-State Dispute and the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal (CWDT) gave its verdict.
    As the matter was lingering the PM forwarded the Order of CWDT to be Implemented. Karnataka was flouting the PM's order.
    here comes the Scene. Art 356. Provisions is applied in case of failure of constitutional machinery in State ( As Karnataka was not abiding by the PM's decision the Supreme Court ordered that if within due date the Orders are not implemented the it shall be deemed as the breakdown of Constitutional Machinery)
    So, Reluctantly Karnataka has to abide the Order. Its not due to SC's Judgement but due to PM's order that this issue has attracted Art 356. But its Good to see finally that the Water is being released to TN. But why is this such a hue and cry. :confused:
