Reports indicate that a dead rat was discovered in the breakfast provided to police officers on security duty during the Bengaluru bandh and farmer protests related to the Cauvery water dispute. In response, the hotel owner received a notice, and the Joint Commissioner of Police instructed the Yeshwantpur police to investigate the private hotel responsible for supplying the food to the officers.

The hotel owner is set to face legal action over the incident. The discovery of the dead rat in the food happened before anyone consumed it, preventing any potential harm.

The Cauvery Water Regulation Committee, situated in New Delhi, has suggested that Karnataka should begin releasing 3000 cusecs of water each day from Biligundlu, commencing at 8 a.m. on September 28 and continuing until October 15. In response, former Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy expressed his displeasure, particularly towards the ruling Congress, regarding the reported detention of farmers and Kannada activists who were taking part in the ‘bandh’ protest here against the Cauvery water release to Tamil Nadu.

He emphasized the prompt release of the protesters and farmers, stressing the need to halt the flow of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu. In contrast, Karnataka’s Chief Minister asserted that his government consistently prioritizes the welfare of the state, its citizens, and farmers. He underlined that their focus lies on the well-being of the people rather than political power, stating, We have a strong belief in this principle.

The Chief Minister highlighted that, up to this point, there hasn’t been a clear strategy for sharing Cauvery water during drought years. He explained, “We have been advocating for a specific plan for such situations. We’ve consistently pushed for this, both in the Supreme Court and before the tribunal.” In response to criticism from the opposition BJP and JDS for turning the Cauvery issue into a political matter, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah firmly dismissed allegations of his government’s failure on the matter. He asserted that his administration has always prioritized safeguarding the interests of the state, its residents, and its farmers.
