DMK treasurer M K Stalin will lead a protest meeting on September 3 against Kerala government's move to construct a dam across Siruvani and also Tamil Nadu government's 'failure' to take any action against this.
A resolution adopted at a meeting of District DMK office bearers, led by former minister Pongalur N Palanisamy, blamed Tamil Nadu government for its 'failure' to respond to letters sent by the Centre and Kerala Government over the issue. Considering this, the environment ministry had cleared the project during its meeting on August 11 and 12, it claimed. The party said it would hold a protest meeting here, in which Stalin, who is also the opposition leader will participate, it said.
Yesterday Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's urgent intervention for withdrawing a central committee's recommendation for an environmental impact assessment study on a proposal of Kerala government to build a dam across river Siruvani at Attappady.
