Bengaluru: Independent MP from Mandya, Sumalatha Ambareesh, on Wednesday (July 31) dismissed the allegation by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (DMK) Dayanidhi Maran in the Lok Sabha after he claimed that Karnataka had been continuously violating the orders of the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal and the Supreme Court on releasing water to Tamil Nadu.
Addressing the House, Sumalatha said, "I do not think that Karnataka has ever been in contempt of the court orders and has always obeyed the court orders. We have been peace-loving and stood in cooperation with our neighbours always."
