Chennai: A delegation of BJP leaders from
Tamil Nadu on Sunday met party senior leader L K Advani in Delhi
to apprise him of the state`s "just stand and Kerala`s wrong
campaign" on Mullaperiyar dam row, ahead of his scheduled
meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

"We informed him about various reports on the safety and
strength of the dam, the need to increase the storage level to
142 feet and the extraordinary situation created in the two
states (Tamil Nadu and Kerala) due to the wrong campaign by
Kerala government and politicians there," party state unit
secretary Pon Radhakrishnan, who led the team, said in a
statement here.

He was accompanied by senior leaders L Ganesan and H Raja,
among others.
Advani is scheduled to meet the Prime Minister on the issue
and urge him to convene a meeting with Chief Ministers of
Kerala and Tamil Nadu to find a solution to the long pending
row which has escalated in recent days.
