Chennai, April 29 (IANS) The DMK President M.K. Stalin on Wednesday said huge protests, by mobilising political parties and farmers, will be held if the Central government does not revoke its decision to bring the Cauvery Water Management Authority under Union Jal Shakti Ministry.

Condemning the Central government’s decision, Stalin also urged the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami to convene a Cabinet meeting and pass a resolution asking the Central government to drop its latest move.

Stalin said what was supposed to be an independent has been brought under the administrative control of the Central government which is nothing but injustice.

The Cauvery Water Management Authority was set up to share Cauvery river water between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Kerala.

According to Stalin the Central government’s move will affect the Tamil Nadu’s farmers.
