No water for irrigation despite brimming Cauvery river, say Tamil Nadu farmers

Thousands of families have been evacuated from Tamil Nadu’s Salem, Erode, Namakkal and Karur districts due to the outflow from the Cauvery but farmers living in the districts near the river mouth claim water has not been flowing into irrigation canals leading to their fields.
This is the first time since 2005 that there is such an overflow in the Cauvery, thanks to heavy rain in the river’s catchment areas in Karnataka, following which about 170,000 cusecs were released from the Krishna Raja Sagara and Kabini dams in that state.(PTI File Photo)
