Bengaluru: State government has finally succeeded in pacifying Veteran lawyer Fali S Nariman to represent Karnataka before the Supreme Court in the case on sharing of the Cauvery river water with Tamil Nadu.
According to latest reports Nariman has agreed to represent Karnataka in the crucial Cauvery water sharing case.

Earlier, Nariman had told Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on phone from Delhi that he would not argue for the state in the Cauvery case as the opposition lawmakers criticised him and asked for his replacement on Monday. Siddaramaiah, however, rushed Water Resources Minister M.B. Patil to Delhi to pacify Nariman and ask him to continue in the case, as his legal services were essential to defend the state’s stand.

Bharatiya Janata Party leaders Jagadish Shettar, in the assembly, and K.S. Eshwarappa, in the council, criticised Nariman for not arguing the state’s case on September 30 in the apex court on the grounds that the state had not complied with its orders of September 20 and September 27 to release more water to Tamil Nadu.
