Letters to the Editor
Sir, Your Editorial `The waters of discord' (Aug. 31) highlights the destructive attitude adopted by those in power. When the Prime Minister, A.B. Vajpayee, suggested distress sharing of the Cauvery water, Karnakata refused it. Now in the face of the Supreme Court decision for releasing 1.25 tmcft daily, the same politicians are calling for the early convening of a meeting by Mr. Vajpayee.
The elected representatives of the people have forgotten that their main duty is to ensure development and prosperity. They talk about the `haves' sharing with the `havenots' at every international forum while sharing is not being practised among ourselves. How selfish can our elected leaders get?
For now, the vital question is: will the Cauvery waters reach the parched lands of the delta region in time for the next sowing season or will this senseless dispute continue indefinitely?
