AIADMK demonstration

CHENNAI: The Theni district unit of the AIADMK will hold a demonstration at Uthamapalayam on October 5 to condemn the Kerala Government’s efforts to construct a new dam in the Mullaperiyar dam area, the AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa said on Saturday.

In a statement here, she strongly criticised the Centre for granting permission to conduct a survey for the construction of the dam. With a view to condemning the State and the Centre and to stress the need for obtaining a stay from the Supreme Court, the demonstration had been planned, she said. — Special Correspondent
