Talking to mediapersons, minister for secondary education K Parthasarathi said the government owould definitely approach the Supreme Court to seek ‘justice’ for the state on Krishna Water Tribunal award, which has evoked sharp criticism from Opposition parties.

He, however, did not say when the state will approach the apex court. The tribunal, headed by Justice Brijesh Kumar, came out with its final award on Friday. It allotted four thousand million cubic (TMC) of water from Karnataka’s share to Andhra Pradesh and at the same time allowed the former to increase the storage in Almatti dam to 524.256 meters.
