Pamba issue: Vaiko observes fast against Kerala move
Coimbatore: About 1800 MDMK workers led by party
chief Vaiko observed a one-day fast here on Monday protesting
against the proposed move by Kerala government to construct a
dam across the Pamba, a tributary of Amaravathy river.
Some AIADMK workers also joined the protest held at
Udumalpet in nearby Tirupur district.
Earlier, Vaiko told reporters that the proposed dam would
deprive water for cultivation in 20,000 hectares of land in
Tamil Nadu and also drinking water, adversely affecting the
farming community and common man in the region.
He said if Kerala government went ahead with its move,
there was no other option but to block all roads leading to
that State from Tamil Nadu, through which many essential
commodities were being supplied.
Both the Centre and State governments were neglecting the
issue, he alleged.
