Kerala leaders misleading its people:DMK

DMKNew Delhi: DMK accused political parties in Kerala of misleading people on safety of Mullaperiyar Dam. DMK sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s intervention to “desist” them from engaging in a “false propaganda” and await final orders of the Supreme Court on it.

In a memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister, DMK MPs said his intervention will help allay fears of the people of Kerala on the safety of the dam built in 1895 and “put an end to the animosity created among the people of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.”The DMK delegation also sought an all-India ban on the screening of the multi-lingual film ‘Dam 999’.

“…Kerala had been consistently making false propaganda about the safety of the dam through media and other means. The recent projection of a movie by name ‘Dam 999’ is part of such false propaganda,” the memorandum alleged.The DMK MP’s alleged that political parties in Kerala were “deliberately misinforming” the people of Kerala about the safety of the dam, “thereby cresting fear in the minds of the people, which will in turn harness hatred and mistrust among the people of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.”
