K’taka not to compromise on river link projects, will take all measures to get his fair share, says Basavaraj Bommai

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Monday that the state government had a clear position on the proposed Krishna and Cauvery-related river link projects. All measures will be taken to obtain the State’s share of water without compromise on this point. Speaking to the media, the Chief Minister said: “Our share must be decided according to the water that accumulates in our river basin, our need and our fair share. That is our position. All States should be given confidence before finalizing the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the project.”

“Every measure would be taken to get the fair share of water from Karnataka. As it involves Krishna and Cauvery, the lifelines of our state, we have made our position clear. There is no compromise on this. “Bommai said. “I am holding a meeting with our state deputies in New Delhi. Various projects related to state and union governments will be discussed. We will also discuss state budget estimates as there is a link between the budget of the Union, which was recently presented and the state budget,” he said.

Asked about uniform issues in educational institutions in the state, the Chief Minister said that the Constitution mentions dress code in schools and colleges. “They should follow the state government circular in this regard,” he said. The interconnection of the Mahanadi, Godavari, Krishna, Cauvery, Palar and Pennar rivers is part of the Himalayan and Peninsular Rivers Linkage Project. “Our position is clear on the project and we are committed to it,” Bommai said.
