DK Shivakumar – President, Karnataka Congress:
After SC had unequivocally stated in its Constitutional Bench judgement that a State need not seek permission from another riparian State for its projects, Karnataka CM seeking permission from TN CM is outrageous.
It is a clear reflection of a lack of political will.
When Congress was in power in Karnataka, we had already began the process of floating tenders for Mekedatu project
Why couldn’t the CM simply carry on with the same process and give out tenders?
Being misinformed is one thing, lacking intent is another.
