Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam on Monday said there is still time for the Central government to set up the Cauvery Management Board and Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee (CWRC) as per the Supreme Court orders.

Speaking in the assembly, Panneerselvam said: "We will wait till the end of this month, then take the next course of action."

He said the state has to wait for the six weeks deadline given by the Supreme Court to get over.

Earlier DMK leader MK Stalin said the ruling AIADMK should support the no-trust motion to be moved by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) against the Central government.

Stalin said Andhra Pradesh government is putting pressure on the Central government to secure special status for the state.

He urged the AIADMK to support the no trust motion so as to mount pressure on the Central government to set up CMB and CWRC.

Panneerselvam said the Cauvery issue against Karnataka should not be compared with the Andhra Pradesh situation.

According to Panneerselvam, the TDP was part of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for the past four-and-half years.

He said Stalin was trying to create an illusion as if the TDP in Andhra Pradesh was fighting for its rights whereas nothing was being done in Tamil Nadu.

The Supreme Court on February 16 ordered the Central government to set up CMB and CWRC within six weeks.

In another related development, Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker and senior AIADMK leader M. Thambidurai told reporters that his party would not allow resumption of business in Parliament till the government gives an assurance on the floor of the House that the Cauvery River Management Board would be set up in accordance with the Supreme Court judgment by this month end.

Asked what the party would if the no-confidence motion was taken up, he said "no proceedings will be allowed till the assurance comes. After the assurance we are not bothered about what the House does."
