The Asian Age - - Nation -

Chen­nai: The Tamil Nadu gov­ern­ment will move the Supreme Court on the is­sue of con­sti­tut­ing the Cau­very Wa­ter Man­age­ment Board, chief min­is­ter K. Palaniswami said on Fri­day even as the rul­ing AIADMK an­nounced that it would ob­serve a fast on April 2 on the mat­ter. With the Cau­very is­sue ap­pear­ing to be snow­balling into an em­bar­rass­ment for the AIADMK which has largely been friendly with the Cen­tre, the party an­nounced a “hunger­strike” on Mon­day seek­ing for­ma­tion of the CWMB and the Cau­very Wa­ter Reg­u­la­tory Com­mit­tee. DMK said it would hold a black flag demon­stra­tion against Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi dur­ing his pro­posed visit to state on April 15.
