The Cauvery issue has been simmering in Bengaluru for some days now. And even though Bengaluru witnessed some normalcy yesterday, the water-sharing dispute just doesn’t seem to end.
After two days of violent protests over Cauvery water dispute, the curfew was lifted in all 16 police station limits of the city on Wednesday.
The 125-year-old rivalry between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu over the Cauvery river was raised again after the September 5 order of the Supreme Court asking Karnataka to release 15,000 cusecs of water per day to Tamil Nadu.
Buses with ‘TN’ number plates were torched in Bengaluru, and two people were killed during the violent protests. Meanwhile, in Chennai, Udupi hotels and Karnataka branches were attacked.
But Cauvery issue is definitely more than just a water-sharing conflict.
