"The state and the Central government have betrayed the people of Tamil Nadu".

Meanwhile, the AIADMK too will have a state-wide hunger strike without the CM and deputy CM participating in it.

According to the statement, black flags would be shown to Prime Minister Narendra Modi whenever he comes to Tamil Nadu for not setting up the CMB.

With the DMK and its allies calling for a shutdown over the issue in Chennai and Coimbatore on April 5, the protests over Cauvery may take epic proportions, similar to what Tamil Nadu witnessed previous year during jallikattu and farmer suicide agitations. Panneerselvam told reporters here that the AIADMK's hunger strike would be a success.

Abiding to a call by the traders association, several shops across the state were closed.

What adds to the woes of the State Government is the well planned but secret flash demonstrations to be held by the youth wings of various Left, Extreme Left and Tamil chauvinistic unions in the State. The strike began at 8 am and will continue till 5 pm.

Coimbatore: Two DMK workers today attempted to commit suicide by self-immolation, protesting against the Centre for its failure to constitute Cauvery Management Board.

Seeking help from the ruling AIADMK, which moved the Supreme Court on Saturday against the Centre, Stalin said the DMK would also take out a Cauvery rights retrieval walk from the delta area. Protests have been going on in various parts of the State urging the Centre to set up the CMB at once.

Citing assembly polls in Karnataka, the Centre had last week sought more time from the Supreme Court to set up the Cauvery water management board to implement water sharing formula between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry. In its judgment, the apex court had raised the 270 tmcft share of Karnataka by 14.75 tmcft and reduced Tamilnadu's share of Cauvery water.

In its petition, the Centre has said immediate implementation of the Supreme Court's order will have law and order implications in Karnataka as Cauvery is an emotive issue.
