Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has convened an all-party meeting on May 9 in Bengaluru to discuss the Centre's proposal to set up an expert group to look into grievances of the riparian states of the Cauvery river.

Sources in the Chief Minister's office said the state government is also planning to pass a resolution in the legislature on the Mekedatu project, which has met with stiff opposition from the Tamil Nadu government. The project envisages constructing a reservoir across the river Cauvery near Mekedatu. Siddaramaiah will elicit views of the leaders on both, the Centre's proposal as well as the Mekedatu project.

Besides, the chief minister will apprise the leaders of the availability of water in the four reservoirs of the Cauvery in the state - the KRS, the Kabini, the Hemavathi and the Harangi. He will also discuss the contingency plan to be implemented in case the south-west monsoon fails again, the sources added.
