New Delhi: Congress leader Manickam Tagore on Wednesday condemned two organisations for conducting a mock funeral of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin and his Karnataka counterpart Siddaramaiah over the Cauvery water dispute and urged them to protest with dignity.
In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Tagore said, “Condemn the two organisations for insulting the People’s elected Chief ministers of Tamilnadu and Karnataka.. Protest with dignity. Show your anger in a decent way. Cauvery is an important issue for both of us and we have the right to claim ours. Let’s do it with decency,” he added.
He also attached the photographs of the farmers in Tamil Nadu and another organisation in Karnataka holding mock funerals of chief ministers and staging an agitation with dead rats near their mouths over sharing the water of the Cauvery.
