On Centre's submission, the Karanataka state government called it a "partisan attitude" of the Centre to favour Karantaka. It also directed the Central Government to file an affidavit in the matter, news agency ANI reported.

The apex court had on February 16 raised the 270 tmcft share of Cauvery water for Karnataka by 14.75 tmcft and reduced Tamil Nadu's share while compensating it by allowing extraction of 10 tmcft groundwater from the river basin, saying the issue of drinking water has to be placed on a "higher pedestal". He also said that in the event of the Karnataka elections, the PM and ministers are travelling.

The court also questioned the Centre for the reason for the delay in forming the scheme as ordered by it.

Even as the DMK activists were waving black flags and hurling stones at the union minister, a delegation of Tamil film personalities called on Governor Banwarilal Purohit and submitted a memorandum requesting him to hasten the process of the constitution of the CMB as the State was facing severe water shortage. "In view of summer season, Karnataka has to release two TMC of water for April and two TMC of water for May", he told the media.

The court said the authorities are required to ensure peace till it peruses the draft scheme and finalises it for proper distribution of Cauvery water. Initially, the Centre sought three months time to implement the directive. In its prayer to the Supreme Court, the Tamil Nadu government sought to, "initiate contempt of court proceedings against Respondents for wilful disobedience in carrying out the clear mandate set out in para 403 of the Judgement passed by this Hon'ble Court dated 16.02.2018 in C.A. No 2453 of 2007 and connected Appeals".
