Opposition members stage a walk out in the Assembly

The Kerala Cabinet will discuss on Wednesday how the State should respond to Tamil Nadu’s unresponsiveness to its demand for releasing water under the Parambikulam-Aliyar pact. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Tuesday told the Assembly that the Minister for Water Resources had repeatedly brought to the notice of his counterpart in Tamil Nadu the need to expeditiously release the water. “But Tamil Nadu has not responded positively. In this context, the Cabinet will on Wednesday decide what measures, including legal, the State should take,” Mr. Chandy said.
