Mullai Periyar: TN files fresh plea in SC

Chennai: Tamilnadu government today filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the construction of any new building in the Mullai Periyar Dam area.

The petition has also sought the Court to direct the Kerala government to remove the already existing structures in the dam area.

It may be noted that recently the State government sought a stay order against Kerala’s proposal of constructing a car parking in the area.

Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in which he requested him to withdraw the permission granted to Kerala for conducting study for construction of new Mullai Periyar Dam, besides restoring the water level to the full reservoir level of 152 ft.
