Kerala Governors intervention sought to implement scheme

Coimbatore: Federation of Tamil Nadu Agriculturists Association Sunday sought the intervention of Kerala Governor Justice P Sathasivam for implementing the Pandiyar-Punnampuzha water scheme, by which Tamil Nadu can get water and Kerala the much needed power.

In a letter to Sathasivam, who is a two-day visit here, Association Secretary S Nallasami pointed out that the Pandiyar-Punnampuzha rivers originate from Devala forests in Nilgiris district in Tamil Nadu and the water flows North to go waste in the sea in Kozhikode via Nilambur in Kerala.

The scheme, conceived by these states, has been on hold since 1967, he said, adding that if it was implemented, Tamil Nadu can get 18 TMC of water and Kerala the much needed power to tide over their crisis.

Moreover the scheme would benefit irrigation in Bhavani area and could be a model for implementation of the Avanashi-Athikadavu water scheme, also pending for the last two decades and assist delta farmers and also benefit Chennai, by linking with Veeranam, he claimed.

Nallasami said the scheme was conceived by both states without any involvement of the Centre and once implemented, could become a model for future schemes, which would mutually benefit both states.
