Chidambaram speech: MP PT Thomas protest’s before parliament

MP PT ThomasNew Delhi: Kerala MP PT Thomas took out a protest march before the Parliament House in Delhi against the controversial statement made by the Home Minister Chidambaram regarding the Mullaperiyar dam.  ” it was very irresponsible of the Home minister to make such a claim. Chidambaram should have remembered that he not only the Home minister of Tamil Nadu but the Home Minister of this country.

Chidambaram on December 17 stated that the Mullaperiyar dam which was built 116 years ago was for the people of Tamil Nadu. He claimed that the dam was perfectly safe and the politicians of Kerala was creating an uproar keeping the Piravom elections in mind. According to him the matter shall settle down after the Piravom election. The Home Minister who was also an advocate said that he strongly believes that Supreme Court verdict shall be in favour of Tamil Nadu. These views of Chidambaram have become highly controversial.

Chidambaram however on Sunday withdrew his statements.”Like some other speakers , I also made a passing reference to the forthcoming by-elections. I take back the remark. That reference was unnecessary and it was not my intention to hurt the feelings of anyone, said Chidambaram. But his retraction of statements have not been satisfactory for Kerala.
