In a memorandum, AIBA chairman Adish Aggarwala and vice-chairman S. Prabhakaran said certain organisations in Karnataka, to achieve their political ambitions, were resorting to violent agitations against implementation of the drinking water project. They threatened Tamils and damaged their property. Tamils were also being humiliated by anti-national elements.
