As protests against Cauvery water release to Tamil Nadu continued in the district on Sunday, the local administration as a precautionary measure banned entry of tourists inside the Krishnaraja Sagar Reservoir (KRS) complex till February 13.

Prohibitory orders which were in force in and around KRS from February 7 to 10, had been extended by another three days, police sources told PTI.

Security has been beefed up with nearly 300 police personnel guarding the dam, which is a famous tourist attraction, police sources said.

Karnataka began releasing water from the KRS on Saturday complying with the Supreme Court order directing it to supply 2.44 tmc ft to Tamil Nadu to save the standing ‘samba’ paddy crop in the delta districts.

CM’s resignation sought

President of Cauvery Protection Committee G. Madegowda demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar for his ‘failure’ to protect the interest of the state’s farmers.

The BJP Government has decided to file a petition in the apex court on Monday seeking review of its order citing depleted storage in Karnataka reservoirs.

Speaking to reporters in Shimoga, the Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar said “we have strictly obeyed the order of Supreme Court regarding release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.” He said the state was filing a review petition before the apex court.
