The sparring between the Tamil Nadu and Kerala government has increased after the latter’s insistence to build a dam across the Siruvani river.
TN Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Saturday wrote to Prime Minister Modi asking him to immediately make the Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) withdraw its recommendations for conducting an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) for the dam proposed by Kerala.
The DMK meanwhile has announced a protest meeting in Chennai on September 3. The protest to be lead by MK Stalin will be against the Kerala government's move and the TN government's 'failure' to take any action against this.
A resolution adopted at a meeting of District DMK office bearers, led by former minister Pongalur N Palanisamy, blamed Tamil Nadu government for its 'failure' to respond to letters sent by the Centre and Kerala Government over the issue.
