 Mullaperiyar Dam
Chennai, Dec 12: DMK leaders are observing a day-long fast today (Dec 12) to draw the Centre's attention towards the vexed Mullaperiyar Dam issue and also assert the state's rights.

Party General Secretary K Anbazhagan kicked off the protest at DMK headquarters "Anna Arivalayam" here in which many party cadres participated. Similar fast was being held in other parts of the state. A human chain in five districts receiving water from the dam is scheduled on Wednesday.

Tamil Nadu and Kerala are locked in a row over the dam, with the latter wanting to dismantle the existing structure on safety grounds and construct a new one. Tamil Nadu is stiffly opposed to it, saying the dam was safe.
