Supreme Court Urges Cooperation, Not Competition Between Centre and Karnataka Government

In a notable hearing on Monday, the Supreme Court of India addressed the petition filed by the Karnataka government regarding the non-release of drought relief funds. The court emphasized the need for collaboration rather than competition between the central and state governments. This comes in the wake of both the Centre and Karnataka approaching the apex court over the issue.

The bench, led by Justices B R Gavai and Sandeep Mehta, was hearing a petition in which the Karnataka government accused the central government of failing to provide financial assistance to tackle the drought situation in certain areas. The Supreme Court has deferred the hearing for two weeks, during which time it has sought a response from the Centre.
