The Krishna government is contemplating seeking a review of the directive, issued by a Supreme Court constitution bench, to ensure adequate flow of the waters. "We’ve asked our law department and lawyers to consider the implications of seeking a constitutional review of the directive," a minister said. Under the inter-state River Water Disputes Act, only a tribunal could adjudicate in a dispute over sharing of waters.

The other line of defence would depend on the outcome of a visit by a six-member Cauvery Monitoring Committee, headed by Union water resources secretary A.K. Goswami. The panel proceeded to the Krishna-rajasagar reservoir where thousands of Karnataka farmers had gathered seeking more water for themselves and demonstrated against the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.
