: The district committee meeting of All India Kisan Sabha held here on Wednesday alleged that the State government had failed to implement the decisions of an all-party meeting organised by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in Thiruvanathapuram last month to get Kerala’s due share of water from the inter-State Parambikulam Aliyar Project (PAP) agreement for Chitturpuzha in the district.
In a statement here on Wednesday, the sabha said the meeting had decided to hold ministerial-level discussions with Tamil Nadu government to get water from PAP. It was also decided to approach the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister on the violation of PAP agreement by Tamil Nadu.
But the government did not implement any of these decisions and the Chittur farmers lost their crop, particularly paddy, as they did not get water from PAP.
The government also failed to convince the Central government team that recently visited the district to study the drought situation. The team was not taken to eastern Attappady which faced severe drought condition.
