Centre’s attempt to solve dam issue fails: Antony

A K AntonyThrissur: The Centre’s attempt to solve the Mullaperiyar issue amicably has failed, said Defense Minister A K Antony. Though the national political parties have approached the centre seeking a solution to the Mullaperiyar issue, but they have not put forth any solutions. “The centre has not been able to resolve the Mullaperiyar issue, but they have not given up. The two states have taken polarized opposing stands regarding the Mullaperiyar issue. It is essential to resolve the issue out of courts through dialogues,” Antony said.

The Prime Minister is conducting dialogues with leaders of both the states. A solution to the cases that are pending in court must be arrived at the earliest. Besides a court solution the leaders, and political heads of both the states must be able to sit around the table and arrive at a solution so that the relationship between the two states are not affected. If the two states continue to lock horns over the dam, it will result in immense loss for both the states whose economy relies upon each other.
