Amid the Cauvery water row gaining momentum with each passing day, PM Narendra Modi’s appeal for peace came across today. The issue that has already caused lot of havoc wreaking across the neighbouring states Karnataka and Tamil Nadu has caught the attention of the nation.

Karnataka, from where the flow of river Cauvery’s water has been ordered to Tamil Nadu has been miffed as it will hamper the agricultural activities in the state. On Monday, pro-Kannada activists in the state staged demonstrations, burnt down vehicles heading towards Tamil Nadu. Even the TN Chief Minister Jayalalithaa wasn’t spared, with her posters being burnt down as a part of the agitation.

Causing major losses to their own capital city Bangalore, shops were burnt near bus stops and the state observed a bandh like situation.

Karnataka CM Siddaramiah had written to PM Narendra Modi a few days back seeking his attention on the matter. He had requested the PM to hold a meeting with all other CMs to find a solution to the grave issue. Modi has now sent his appeal across through social media.

Through his official twitter handle, in a chain of tweets, Modi said:

Modi said that he is pained at the development. He appealed to Karnataka people to maintain peace as in a democracy, the solutions are found through restraint and mutual dialogue. He appealed to the people to keep national interest above everything and maintain faith in the government.

Both the states have been getting aggressive on the issue as it concerns their farmers. Tamil Nadu’s AIADMK had said that Cauvery also belongs to them and they have all the rights on it.
