Despite the Supreme Court's order to share Cauvery water with Tamil Nadu for three days, Karnataka has failed to comply for a second time.
An earlier directive required Karnataka to release 6,000 cusecs of water every day for a week which was ignored. Post which, they were ordered to release water for three days which has not been followed either. Both of these orders have remained ignored by the Karnataka government.
