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.
