Raise the Water Level


Really it was like honey passed through our ears, because of the recent order from Supreme Court on the issue of Mullai Periyar River problem.

“Should raise the water level of Mullai Periyar Dam” this is the long day’s dream of the farmers in south Tamil Nadu. For this dream, now the Supreme Court has ruled to raise the water level from 136 feet to142 feet in Mullai Periyar Dam. The 9tmc water which flows form Periyar Dam changed the drought faced lands as Agricultural land in the districts of Madurai, Sivagangai, Dindukkal, up to Ramanathapurm. After 1960, the irrigation area extended in south Tamil Nadu, many kind of demands were raised, at this time of judgment again another obstacle.

Against the order of Supreme Court, The Kerala has called all party meeting and decided to correct the Kerala State Dam security Law in assembly on March 14 (today). In the election time, the all parties in Kerala has raised there voice, if we raise the waterlevel in Periyar Day it will affect us.

We should not leave our rights, so the people in Tamil Nadu should protest on Kerala’s decision to correct the Law on Mullai Periyar Dam.

water is national property, everybody wants it, rites and all wont work, talk it out. THere is no other way, other wise we can go back to stone age and start hackign each other like the cauvery issue, the choice is ours!!!

Yeah, I agree with you Jeevan.

Infact, I am dreaming of a day when all the rivers in India will be under the control of the Central Govt..and they handle it..without the interference of the states.

It would benefit everyone to connect all the rivers. Its the best way to solve our water problems.

PS - Let's assume that Kerala agrees and does it...How do they measure all this??? Is this thru Random checking.?? I am confused...if it is an eyewash.!!

Vinesh – there action is against People.

Smiley – I think it is not a big issue like Cauvery, they are bring new law in the aim of Coming election.

Vijay – it is the Supreme Court ordered, we hope that the court has clearly checked and ordered. Even though they are like this.
