Karnataka will release more water from the river Cauvery to neighbouring Tamil Nadu as per the Supreme Court order, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said this evening, after an all-party meet. "As a state, we cannot defy the Supreme Court's orders," he said. Earlier today, protesters blocked a major highway in Karnataka for several hours against the top court order. Movement between the two states was badly hit.
