MDMK chief Vaiko detained over Mullaperiyar row

Chennai, Wed, 21 Dec 2011 ANI

Chennai/Theni (Tamil Nadu), Dec.21 (ANI): The standoff between Tamil Nadu and Kerala over the Mullaperiyar dam dispute intensified on Wednesday with cadres of MDMK blocking all roads leading to Kerala from Tamil Nadu.


Police detained MDMK supremo Vaiko while he was leading the protest in Theni.


Protests were also held at Kanyakumari, Coimbatore and the Nilgiris.


Vaiko has been demanding for deploying Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at Mullaperiyar dam as its protection by the Kerala police would not be a foolproof one. He had on Sunday said the safety of Mullaperiyar dam would be in peril if the protection continues to be vested with the Kerala police, which act as per the whims and fancies of self-seeking politicians of that state.


While the water from the Mullaperiyar dam irrigates the drought-prone southern districts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala is dependent on Tamil Nadu for a huge supply of milk, vegetables and meat, among others.


The message from these political parties of Tamil Nadu is clear - The Mullaperiyar issue could snowball into an economic crisis for the neighbouring state. (ANI)
