A day after Kerala Assembly passed a unanimous resolution insisting on a new reservoir to replace the Mullaperiyar dam, the TN govt has sought to build pressure on the stakeholders by insisting the 116-year-old structure is safe.
Hours after briefing PM Manmohan Singh on the imminent threat to the Mullaperiyar dam in Kerala, state Water Resources Minister PJ Joseph said here on Tuesday that the dam’s collapse will put upto seven million lives in danger.
MDMK general secretary Vaiko was
arrested along with party workers near Amaravathy check-post, when they were proceeding to
Kerala Friday to check whether that state govt was
constructing a dam across Pamba river.
