Water woes in the sate is horrible. Why are we not concerned about our own problems? Our people are struggling and our politicians and the supreme court have agreed to share water with TN .

We have to how our protest against TN . The politicians have to go through the problem faced by the State then come to a conclusion. If we we have excess the case is different but now our farmers and the people are facing a lot of water woes and how can we compromise for sharing water.
