TAMIL NADU

CP's suggestion

Sir,— Dr. S. Kalyanaraman in his article `Inter-linking of rivers' (Oct. 22) is wrong in ascribing the idea of the linking of Ganga and Cauvery rivers to Prof. K.L. Rao. The original suggestion was made by Sir. C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar in 1923. He suggested the formation of a National River Policy and the inter-linking of the Ganga and the Cauvery.
