The final hearing on the appeals filed by 4 states, including Tamilnadu and Karnataka, has been held before Chief Justice Deepak Mishra, Justice Amitavarai and AM Kanwal.
With the end of Karnataka and Kerala government proposals, the Tamil Nadu government’s finality is taking place. The argument of the Tamil Nadu government continued on 9th day yesterday. Senior lawyers on behalf of Tamil Nadu Shekar Napte, Rakesh Dwivedi, Attorneys G.Umapathy and C. Parameshwam were present.
In the beginning of his argument, senior lawyer Shekhar Naptee explained the extent of rain in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and said farmers in Tamil Nadu only believed in rain water and cauvery water. The Tamil Nadu farmers believe that the rains are sometimes falling in the state and sometimes the crops will be destroyed by storm rains.
Why do not the judges and the extra rain water share with the system? That question. And “present at 192 tmc. (A TMC is 100 billion cubic feet) with water. The monsoon is not always stable and can be used to store more water and use the samba or radius when it is not water. But you refuse to cooperate. Organize the team and make it function properly. The work of the crew will formally share water. ”
Moreover, why does Tamil Nadu not use the groundwater completely? They questioned me.
Speaking to him, Nair said, “The Cauvery Arbitration Council has calculated that” the groundwater water in us is just 20 tmc. The full use of the ground water is not environmentally friendly. That is why we are dependent on ground water only in rain water. The rain often leaves us. We have full confidence in Cauvery water. But our right is denied to us. ”
Furthermore, he said that the Cauvery issue that began in the 1950s has not been completed so far, he said that Tamil Nadu had a total of 750 tmc in 1961 and 1962, 650 tmc in 1963 and 329 TM in 1964. C, 473 tmc in 1965 and 346 tmc in 1971. It also said that it has now slowed down.
“The Karnataka government did not systematically follow the interim order and ultimatum of the High Courts on Cauvery Water Distribution. No case has ever been affected by Karnataka. Central government does not recognize the course of Karnataka. The Karnataka government refuses to admit. The law did not do its job properly. They do not give us the water to give us the court verdict. Instead, they stand in the street and strike the protests, “said Shekhar Napte.
The judges said, “It’s okay if you do not trust Karnataka. Trust in the law. ”
Vadadya Shekhar Napte continued: –
The reservation committee reserved 419 tmc. Water is only on paper. 192 TMC Karnataka does not systematically supply water. But the Tribunal Forum allocated 220 TMC They use more than water. That is why we totally oppose the new dam. If the new dam is set up in Karnataka, it will again lead to new problems and new cases. The solution is not available. So the new dam is not allowed to build. The court order should be ordered to supply water to Sampa and Rambha.
He said so.
The judges said, “We are ready to define what practices must be followed when the new dam is constructed. The Supreme Court and the Disciplinary Committee’s task is to regularly allocate and provide water. Trust in the Supreme Court. We will give a good judgment, “the judges said.
Further, the judges told Additional Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, who had been present, to be asked to answer the issues raised by the Central Government during his argument.
The judges said that they are not going to investigate the petition filed against the Megatathu dam alone.
The trial is still ongoing (Thursday).
