Mullaperiyar dam is like a water bomb, TN should act immediately: MM Mani

NEDUMKANDAM: Former Electricity Minister MM Mani said that Tamil Nadu should take necessary action to avoid an impending disaster. Mani, who urged that a new dam should be constructed at Mullaperiyar, added that the condition of the existing dam was very bad.

"The Mullaperiyar dam is existing like a water bomb above Vandiperiyar. The dam was built using molasses and lime and its inside is hollow. I have visited the dam several times and have seen water dripping from the dam. Tamil Nadu is playing politics on the issue," he said while speaking at an indefinite fast of farmers.


"There is no point in repairing the dam. If anything happens to the dam, the people of Tamil Nadu will die without drinking water and the people of Kerala will drown. A new dam should be constructed at Mullaperiyar. I have said this in the Assembly. The LDF too has the same stand. The issue can be solved if Tamil Nadu CM Stalin takes a favourable decision," he added.
