Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Basangouda Patil Yatnal has sparked a fresh row by saying Jawaharlal Nehru wasn’t India’s first Prime Minister. Addressing a recent public event, the BJP MLA said, “Nehru was not the first Prime Minister, but it was Subhash Chandra Bose.” He asserted that the British left India because Bose instilled fear in them. The BJP MLA also mocked the father of the nation in his speech at a public event in Karnataka.

WHY CAUVERY WATER DISPUTE FLARES UP AGAIN BETWEEN KARNATAKA, TAMIL NADU
Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have been at loggerheads over the sharing of the water of the Cauvery river for decades. The issue has flared up again now after the Supreme Court ordered the Karnataka government to release 5,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu for 15 days from September 13. In protest, a bandh was held and another called by the ‘Karnataka Jala Samrakshana Samiti’, an umbrella outfit of farmers’ associations and other organisations. The protesters argue that water is being released to Tamil Nadu even as the southwest monsoon draws to a close and storage levels are very low in the Cauvery basin reservoirs in Karnataka. Cauvery is the main source of drinking water for the city of Bengaluru and for the irrigation of farmland in the Mandya region of the state.
