Patel to lead MPs's team on Cauvery
Karnataka Chief Minister J H Patel said he would lead an all-party delegation of members of Parliament to meet Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to impress upon that it would not be in anyone's interest to thrust the interim award of the Cauvery Disputes Tribunal.
Patel told the media after a meeting with MPs from Karnataka that the state would seek a 'total and comprehensive' solution and not a piece meal approach.
It was time for Karnataka to sit up and make it known that it would no longer tolerate injustice whether it was on the issue of Cauvery or on the clearance and implementation of projects from the Centre.
He said that there was an effort by the neighbouring states to create an impression that Karnataka was the accused while it was a victim. "Having committed all irregularities, they were now finding fault with a legitimate share of water or power generation," he said.
He said there was something wrong in Karnataka's approach, and his meeting with the MPs was to rectify the situation that always seemed to go against the state.
