Tamil Nadu government will immediately approach the Supreme Court against the Cauvery Regulatory Authority's ruling asking Karnataka to release 9,000 cusecs of water.
Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Monday held a review meeting with her senior cabinet colleagues including Finance Minister O Panneerselvam besides top officials, to discuss the matter.
"At the end of the meeting, the chief minister directed (the officials) to immediately file a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to Karnataka to release Tamil Nadu its due share of water," a state government release said.
The meeting of the Cauvery River Authority, headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 19, failed to produce a solution with both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu rejecting Singh's award of 9,000 cusecs to save standing crops in the delta region of Tamil Nadu.
Karnataka Chief Minister Jagdish Shettar had staged a walkout, saying the state was not ready to give "even a drop of water" to Tamil Nadu while Jayalalithaa called the meeting a "totally disappointed" affair and declared that the state would move the Supreme Court.
