Chennai: PMK founder leader Dr S Ramadoss on Sunday said the people of the state should stand united in its inter-state river water disputes, especially the Mullaperiar Dam row with Kerala.

Stating that Congress was eyeing power in Kerala in the next Assembly elections, he said there was no room to believe that the party (led UPA at Centre) would come to Tamil Nadu's rescue on the issue.

'For long, lack of unity in the state has been the undoing when it comes to water disputes with other states. If this continues, the results could be disastrous for Tamil Nadu. Therefore people should join hands and come forward to organise joint protests,'' he said in a statement here.

Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had yesterday sought the intervention of the Centre to solve the inter-state water disputes, including the Mullaperiyar dam row.
