Briefing newspersons after meeting Modi, she said she stressed the need to expedite the formation of the supervisory committee for raising the water level of the Mullaperiyar Dam as ordered by the Supreme Court.
“There has to be a supervisory committee to oversee the raising of the water level. The committee should consist of three persons, one to be appointed by Tamil Nadu government, one to be appointed by Kerala government and one to be appointed by the Central Water Commission. We in Tamil Nadu have appointed our member, Kerala has also appointed its member, so I urged the Prime Minister to expedite the nomination of a member from the Central Water Commission so that before the southwest monsoon sets in in earnest, the water level can be raised to 142 feet,” she added.
The memorandum also contained several other issues relating to grant of the Digital Addressable System license for the Tamil Nadu Arasu Cable TV Corporation, infrastructure specifically power, urban infrastructure and services, metro rail, transport and industrial infrastructure, modernisation of the police force and declaration of Tamil as an official language.
