Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa today declined to comment on the political developments following the Trinamool Congress withdrawing support to the UPA Government.

“I am going to participate in the Cauvery River Authority meeting. My focus and concentration are on the meeting,” Jayalalithaa told presspersons before leaving for Delhi.

The CRA, headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, has been convened following the Centre’s assurance to the Supreme Court recently.

Jayalalithaa had repeatedly urged the Centre to convene the CRA to discuss the water-sharing dispute with Karnataka.

She had yesterday held discussions with senior cabinet colleagues and officials to finalise the strategy the State would adopt at the meeting.
