Pondicherry states that all the water that is being released is going into the Mettur dam, which is utilised by Tamil Nadu.
Karnataka, however, has remained non committal on the latest demand. It is busy dealing with Tamil Nadu for the moment. It had told the Supreme Court that it is in no position to release anymore water and had even stopped the release of water to Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu found this violative of the order and has decided to file a contempt petition against Karnataka.On Pondicherry's demand Karnataka has the same answer, that there is no water to release.
