Karnataka farmers agitate for Mahadayi waters while BSY assures Krishna waters to Maharashtra!

BS Yediyurappa , Karnataka Chief Minister today stirred a hornet's nest while addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party-Shivsena electoral campaign public meeting at Jatta town belonging to Solapur district in Maharashtra. The lone saffron party mass leader of the neighbouring state gave a clarion call to Kannadigas settled in the bordering districts to vote for the Shivsena candidate in the ensuing Maharashtra Assembly elections to ensure fulfilment of their long-standing demands including release of Krishna River waters from the Alamatti dam of Vijayapura district.Perhaps it was a magnanimous gesture for a chief minister of an adjoining state to declare the release of water for the parched areas of Solapur district. But the timing proved to be unwise.
