Chennai, April 4 (IANS) Tamil film stars belonging to various unions Friday began a daylong protest fast against Karnataka's objections to the drinking water project in Hogenekkal, on the border between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

Amongst the prominent film personalities participating in the protest are Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Sarath Kumar, Sathyraj and yesteryear star Manorama.

The Rs.13.3 billion Hogenekkal Water Supply and Flurosis Mitigation Project, funded by the Japan Bank of International Cooperation (JBIC), is expected to benefit about three million people in Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri districts of Tamil Nadu.

It is slated to cover 6,755 households in three municipal areas, 17 panchayats and 18 small towns in the two districts.

Karnataka is opposed to the project saying its share of the Cauvery waters will be affected.

There is no truth in what Karnataka says.Its share of waters will not be affected.Some cheap politicians of Karnataka politicise and fuel the matter for their advantage.Tamilnadu has a rightful ownership over the Hogenakkal waters.Nobody can deny that.We are claiming and asserting our right.
I express my solidarity with the Tamil film fraternity,ten crores of Tamil people aroud the world and the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Dr.Kalaignar M.Karunanidhi in condemning the atrocities committed against the Tamils in Karnataka and in claiming our rights.I request the Central government to interfere in this matter and give a proper counselling to the politicians of Karnataka.Also, please nationalise the Rivers of India.
