Mr. Vajpayee is due to leave shortly and it may not be possible to convene a CRA meeting so soon, he told presspersons.
With scanty rainfall in the Cauvery basin, the Cauvery Monitoring Committee had evolved a distress-sharing formula for the riparian States of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and Kerala, which was not accepted by Karnataka.
The minutes of the meeting were sent to the Prime Minister's Office before he left for his 12-day foreign tour on September 16, for a decision on convening the CRA, chaired by the Prime Minister. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, and the DMK president, M. Karunanidhi, had also raised the issue of water releases by Karnataka with Mr. Vajpayee, urging him to convene a meeting of the CRA.
