The Delhi Kannada Sangha will join the Kannada activists in New Delhi at Jantar Mantar. The activists have also sought an appointment from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to seek his intervention in the Cauvery dispute.


Sources said that Narayana Gowda and Delhi Kannada Sangha president Nagaraj will meet Modi at the end of the day on October 18 as the PMO had responded positively to their request in this regard.

They will also meet Union Minister for Coal, Mines and Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi.

The Cauvery Water Management Authority had ordered the Karnataka state to release 3,000 cusecs of water for 15 days despite the state’s appeal that the reservoirs have water storage and it would affect the drinking water supply severely in the state during the summer especially to Bengaluru city.
