SC tells TN govt. to maintain Mullaperiyar water levels at 139 ft.
Supreme Court (SC) today told Tamil Nadu (TN) government to try and maintain the water level in Mullaperiya dam at 139ft. It made it clear that it will not come in the way of disputes between two states. SC was dealing with the case of Kerala government blaming that of TN, for causing floods in Kerala by not releasing water from Mullaperiyar dam at the right time. TN refuted Kerala government charges, accusing the latter for misinformation regarding release of water from Idukki dam. SC rapped both states for slugfest when people faced disaster.
