Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Mar 31 (NT): AIADMK MP Navaneethakrishnan's warning of committing suicide over postponement in formation of Cauvery Management Board (CMB) became a subject of boo for a follower of sideline AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran, who offered him poison and a noose, on Saturday as ANI reported.
"Navaneethakrishnan announced in Parliament that he will commit suicide but he did not do it, now I offer him this poison and rope to hang himself with, as he failed to do what he said," Dhinakaran supporter Pugalendhi said at a press meet, while displaying a poison and a noose.
"Now, as a strong leader like Amma (J Jayalalithaa) is no more, neighbouring Karnataka is happy, therefore I urge all Tamil Nadu MPs to resign from the Parliament," Pugalendhi added.
On February 16, the Supreme Court asked the Centre to form the CMB to execute a formula for sharing of Cauvery water between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. In the verdict, the top court reduced Tamil Nadu's share in the Cauvery water to 177.25 thousand million cubic feet
However, the Centre has been unsuccessful to set the CMB by March 29, following which Navaneethakrishnan threatened that he will commit suicide. (NT)
