MDMK, PDK workers taken into custody
Coimbatore: MDMK and Periyar Dravida Kazhakam
workers were taken into custody on Tuesday on the Tamil Nadu-Kerala
order when they were on their way to stage a protest against
Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy who was scheduled to open
a police station in Parambikulam area in that state today.
Led by PDK general secretary K Ramakrishnan, and
MDMK rural district secretary Easwaran, as many as 35 workers
raised slogans against the move to open the police station,
which, they alleged, would lead to a dispute on Parambikulam
dam also like that on Mullaperiyar Reservoir.
As the workers, waving blackflags, reached Valanthayamaram
on the border, through which Chandy was to pass through,
Tamil Nadu police took them into custody as a preventive
measure, police said.
Tamil Nadu and Kerala are at loggerheads over the
construction of a new dam, as proposed by Kerala, in place of
the over existing century-old Mullaperiyar reservoir. Tamil
Nadu is against this, saying it would deprive water for
irrigation to five districts of the state.
