Chennai: Amid the row over the Mullaperiyar
dam between Tamil Nadu and Kerala, former President APJ Abdul Kalam today suggested that talks between the two Chief
Ministers could help solve the situation.
Both the Chief Ministers should meet and discuss the issue
to sort it out, Kalam told reporters at the Annual Book Fair
here. "If they meet and discuss, everything should be
possible," he said.
The two states are locked in a bitter row over the 116-year
old dam with Kerala wanting to replace it with a new structure
citing safety concerns while Tamil Nadu is against this,
saying the new dam would deprive it of its due share of water.
