2The Origin of Kaveri is in Karnataka Talakaveri...not in Tamilnadu!
3But we have to plead Tamils for Kaveri water right from the time of British! “Final Verdict”20071991Karnataka can utilize water for only 11,20,000 acresStay on all irrigation projectsTN can utilize water for unlimited acres of land205 TMC should be given to TN (measured at Mettur)136 TMC should be given even in summer.India getsFreedomNo pre-conditions for irrigation projects“Karnataka (ruled by Mysore Wodeyars) must get permission from Madras to start any irrigation project”1892Karnataka gets water only if TN (under British rule) agrees!1924Water can be utilized for only 1,50,000 acres of land by KA!Water can be utilized for 10,00,000 acres of land by TN!

Hence TN has neither released any water water to Kerala, nor are there any signs of it releasing this time! Even this 21 TMC is gulped by TN!
9Total Kaveri water going to TN 419 TMC on paper, but 490 in reality!Self collection 252At Biligundlu 192From Biligundlu to Mettur 25Gain by not giving to Kerala 21

11TN allowed to irrigate more land than KA – is this fair? 1924When British ruled TN, Karnataka was allowed to utilize kaveri water for only 1.5 lakh acres of land whereas TN was allowed to utilize 10 lakh acres of landThis can be attributed to British imperialism1991Even 44 years after Independence, Karnataka can use kaveri water for only 11.2 lakh acres of land whereas there were no such regulations for TN – what sort of justice is this?It is well known now that the imperialistic British unfairly prevented Karnataka from expanding its irrigation base more than TN. But how fair is it to follow the same biased policy even after independence?2007Even after 60 years of Indepence, a biased verdict has now been passed that Karnataka still can use only lakh acres, whereas TN can use lakh acresIsn’t this a continuation of the biased treatment meted out by the British?
12Why has TN always got preferential treatment? Before India’sindependenceMysoreRuled by the Wodeyars of MysoreWodeyars, Tipu Sultan, Hyder Ali strong opponents of BritishTN was under British ruleBritish stronghold in India; Indian rulers suppressed.Result: Britishers cheat Mysore in broad daylight. Tamils gain upper hand over Kaveri. Nobody to stop the BritishAfter India’sindependenceTN“We won’t join the Indian union”, “We oppose Hindi imposition”Upper hand of regional parties not just in TN but also at the center. Even today 4 important central govt. ministries are under Tamils. DMK is one of the parties in the coalition at the centre.KarnatakaForgets its linguistic identityHindi given undue importanceNo regional parties whatsoever; Karnataka marginalized in central govt. policiesResult: Nobody to really represent Karnataka at the centre or advocate for it. TN’s word has become Gospel truth!1892192419912007India’s Independence
