Tamil Nadu is witnessing a state-wide bandh on April 5, called by the Opposition parties in the state, against the non-formation of the Cauvery Management Board by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Centre.
As per the February 16 verdict of the Supreme Court, the Centre was directed to set up a scheme to act as a regulatory body between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. However, the Centre did not set up any such body within the mandated six-week deadline.
A day after the deadline expired, the Centre sought a clarification from the Supreme Court on the interpretation of its judgement. It also sought a three-month extension in view of the elections in Karnataka.
