The apex court had said it was not possible for the Cauvery River Authority (CRA) headed by the Prime Minister to meet, so the state governments should meet to find a solution

Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu and Karanataka will meet on Thursday to discuss the Cauvery issue. The announcement from the Tamil Nadu government comes a day after the Supreme Court asked both the chief ministers to meet and arrive at an amicable solution to the "sensitive" Cauvery water dispute.

Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa said in response to the Supreme Court direction that “we (Tamil Nadu and Karanataka) will meet on November 29th at Bangalore.”

On Monday, the bench of Justices DK Jain and Madan B Lokur asked, "why the two chief ministers can’t sit together? Give it a try, it is not impossible,” it said. “We want you to meet in a congenial manner and discuss the issue in the larger interest of farmers from both states,” it said.

The court said it was not possible for the Cauvery River Authority (CRA) headed by the Prime Minister to meet, so the state governments should meet to find a solution.

The bench urged both the chief ministers to have a meeting and posted the matter for directions on Friday.
