The Supreme Court (SC) has said that the Centre is “in sheer contempt of this court” for disobeying its order in the Cauvery water sharing case. The court said that the Centre was in contempt for disobeying its order to frame a Cauvery water sharing scheme by March 30 and ordered the water resources secretary to be present in court on May 14 with the scheme’s draft. In its February 16 judgment, the SC had attempted to end the 126-year-old dispute. It had increased Karnataka’s share and reduced Tamil Nadu’s, while keeping Kerala and Puducherry’s allocation unchanged.
