A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said the court will pronounce its verdict on Friday.

The court had yesterday thrown out the government's appeal for another delay, citing elections in Karnataka, and had ordered that the draft be submitted in 24 hours. The SC also directed the Centre to modify certain provisions in the draft scheme that gave it the power to have the final word in matters of dispute between the four stakeholder states.

The bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, did not accept the vehement submission of senior advocate Shyam Divan, representing Karnataka, that the finalisation of the draft Cauvery scheme be put on hold till the first week of July as the process of Government formation was on in the State.

"After, I kind of got flustered, but I also kind of feel bad for him because it shows that his mental stability isn't all there". He threatened to notify the Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) "to have each one of them kicked out of my country".

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on the Central government's draft Cauvery management scheme, saying it would pass the order after examining whether the scheme was in consonance with its earlier judgment. Mr Divan told the court "as this scheme will be effective on us for 15 years".

The Congress, which has entered into a post-poll alliance with the JD (S), termed Yeddyurappas oath as chief minister of Karnataka "farcical" and said the partys "irrational insistence" on forming government in the southern state when it does not have the numbers made a mockery of the Constitution. The argument was rejected by the court as the first schedule of water releases begins in June. On February 16, the Supreme Court reduced the quantity of water Karnataka was asked to supply to Tamil Nadu by 14.75 tmc (thousand million cubic litres).
