People of the State must wage a united struggle to establish the rights of
Tamil Nadu on the Cauvery issue and for the constitution of the Cauvery
Management Board, MDMK general secretary Vaiko said in Thanjavur on Monday.

Participating in a human chain protest called by Opposition parties against
the delay in setting up the Cauvery Management Board, Mr. Vaiko alleged
that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre diluted the final verdict
of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal.

“When the CWDT verdict was equal to the Supreme Court order, where did the
necessity for the apex court to intervene again arise?” Mr. Vaiko said
adding that all Tamils must wage a united struggle to achieve the aim of
constituting the CMB.

It was unfortunate that the State Government was a passive supporter to the
ulterior aims of the Centre that sought to forge a “one nation-one
language” policy.

“We will resist those attempts with full vigour,” the MDMK leader said.
