Kozhikode: Kerala Government Chief Whip PC
George on Friday said his party had not backtracked from the
Mullaperiyar Dam agitation, but only temporarily stopped
since Prime minister Manmohan Singh had given assurance to
initiate steps to resolve the issue.
Speaking to media persons here, George said that he was
pained to see the happenings in Tamil Nadu against Keralites.
`I have been receiving number of telephone calls from Keralite
students from Tamil Nadu on their plight`.
Kerala Congress (Mani) had only temporarily stopped the
Mullaperiyar dam agitation considering the assurance of Singh.
Urging the Centre and state Governments to initiate
immediate steps to solve the dam issue, George said people in
the five district of Kerala, who will be directly affected in
the event of any eventuality, were spending sleepless nights.
`Water for Tamil Nadu and safety for the people of Kerala`
is the slogan of the state, he said.
