CAUVERY ROW - Can't wait for Karnataka govt for draft


A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it will consider the suggestions given by all stakeholders while finalising the Cauvery scheme.

The court turned down Karnataka's plea that the hearing in the Cauvery dispute be adjourned till the first week of July since there is no proper elected government in the state after the Assembly elections.
