H.D. Kumaraswamy seeks Centre’s early nod for Mekedatu project on Cauvery river

Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy on Saturday met Union Water Resources Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and sought early nod for the proposed ₹5,912 crore reservoir in Mekedatu on the Cauvery river.
Mr. Kumaraswamy also asked the Centre to notify orders issued by both the tribunals on usage of its share of water from Mahadayi and Krishna rivers.
“In the meeting, the Union Minister has assured that a gazette notification on Mahadayi and Krishna river water will be issued after discussion with the State governments concerned,” an official statement said.
The Krishna River Water Disputes Tribunal-II has allocated 166 TMC (thousand million cubic feet) of water to the State for irrigation and other purpose, while the Mahadayi River Water Disputes Tribunal has allocated 13.2 TMC of water to Karnataka.
Mr. Kumaraswamy said the State has not been able to use the allocated Krishna water in the absence of a gazette notification.
