Chennai, May 14 (IANS) DMK leader M.K. Stalin on Monday urged the Tamil Nadu government to call for an all-party meeting on Tuesday to discuss setting up of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and arming it with legal power.
Stalin’s demand comes after the Centre submitted the Cauvery Draft Water Management Scheme to the Supreme Court on Monday. Representatives of farmer associations would also be a party to the meeting.
In a statement issued here the DMK leader raising concerns about when the Centre would fully implement the scheme, said it was the Tamil Nadu government’s responsibility to stress that it would not accept anybody other than the CMB.
Stalin said the AIADMK government should call the meeting and stress its stand in the apex court on Wednesday, when it, along with other three southern states, has been called for a response on the scheme.
