Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Thursday asked the Centre to act impartially in the state's Cauvery water dispute with neighbouring Karnataka.
"The state government approached the Supreme Court only to get the due share of Cauvery waters in a legal and rightful way," he said, referring to the Centre seeking the dismissal of the Tamil Nadu petition in this regard.
The chief minister also sought the appointment of a monitoring committee to ensure that the full quantum of the water released from Karanataka reservoirs reach the Mettur dam in Tamil Nadu.
