MDMK to block transport of goods to Kerala

Vaiko, general secretary, Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, has called for a road blockade on May 28 to stop transport of foodgrains, vegetables and milk to Kerala to protest its proposal to construct a new dam in place of the Mullaperiyar dam.

Mr. Vaiko said Kerala was proceeding with its plan to construct the new dam. “If they burst hard rock for this purpose, it will damage the Periyar dam which will eventually be decommissioned. On construction of the new dam at a much lower altitude, water will not flow to Tamil Nadu, even if Kerala wanted to share it with the State."
