Supreme Court refuses to defer Cauvery trials on account of government formation

Karnataka had raised objections to the draft scheme, saying it was not in "consonance" with the Supreme Court judgment.

On May 14, the Centre had submitted a draft scheme on the sharing of Cauvery water between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, after several delays and warnings from the court.

The fluid political situation in Karnataka found an echo in the Supreme Court during the hearing on the draft Cauvery Management Scheme when the state sought time till July as the process of government formation was on.

Prosecutors are now considering what charges, if any, to bring against the woman, and a court date for her has been set. She cleans herself up with some napkins, throws those at the employee as well, and then proceeds to leave.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra asked Attorney General K K Venugopal to modify the scheme and submit it for approval on Thursday. "We will not adjourn the matter and we will pass orders tomorrow (Thursday) after the Centre files the modified scheme", the Chief Justice said. Senior advocate Shyam Divan, appearing for the Karnataka government, today submitted suggestions to be dealt while finalising the Cauvery scheme.

In this petition Tamil Nadu is seeking to initiate contempt proceedings against the Centre for not constituting the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) within the stipulated period of six weeks.

"All the states concerned are making submissions to the draft scheme".

The court said the Central government would only be issuing administrative directions for implementing the award. In its verdict on February 16, the Supreme Court had reduced Tamil Nadu's share of water from the river Cauvery while Karnataka's part got a boost. The argument was rejected by the court as the first schedule of water releases begins in June.
