Innovative protests have continued daily to condemn the state government's stance of releasing Cauvery water to tamil Nadu. Similarly, on monday kannada Sena and bjp workers staged a protest holding neem sticks. He participated in the struggle in support of the dharani Satyagraha run by the district Farmers' Welfare Committee and carried out an innovative struggle by holding neem-jaggery in a mug like jaggery to karnataka and jaggery to tamil Nadu for the distribution of kaveri river water. The state government has failed to make an adequate case before the Cauvery River Water Authority and Management Committee. He expressed outrage that because of this, water is being drained into tamil Nadu every night. The state government has done the job of giving jaggery to tamil Nadu and providing neem to the farmers of Karnataka. No matter how much we struggle, we insist that we continue to drain water. Water should be stopped immediately. Otherwise, he demanded that he should leave power.
It is trying to suppress the struggle by arresting the farmers like militants. He complained that this would not bring glory to the state government. They raised slogans like Kannambadi Khali Khali, tamil Nadu Jolly Jolly, government that put flowers in the ears of the farmers and Zombitta into the hands of the farmers etc. Former mla K.T. Srikanthegowda, leaders Induvalu Chandrasekhar, Boraya, Sunanda Jayaram, C.T. Manjunath, Ambujamma, kannada Sene Manjunath and many others participated in the protest. Judiciary does not have accurate data on the crisis formula related to Cauvery river water sharing. Former chief minister Basavaraja Bommai said that the state government should discuss this with legal experts and prepare a difficult formula and move forward. Speaking in support of the sit-in satyagraha being held by the district Farmers' Welfare Committee in front of the statue of Sir M. Visveswaraiah in the city, he said that justice can be obtained in the Cauvery issue only by preparing a difficult formula and waging a legal battle.
Advising the Cauvery Water Control Committee, the Cauvery Water Management Authority and the supreme court by putting forward this formula. If the supreme court gives direction to the central government in this matter, we are all ready to put pressure on the Centre. In the past, the prime minister had all kinds of powers in the matter of Cauvery river water. However, after the formation of the Authority, the power of the prime minister has been curtailed. He said that the materiality of the water storage can be convinced in the authority and the supreme Court.
The state government has completely failed: the acreage information and water quantity required for the Kuruvai crop in tamil Nadu and the Monsoon crop in karnataka has been fixed in the tribunal order. Nowhere is it said to drain water based on the level of water in the reservoirs. He complained that the state government has completely failed to put forward many such points. bjp was in power in 2012 when drought situation was faced. At that time, the supreme court had ordered to release 12 tmc of water to tamil Nadu in four weeks.
