Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 27 (TIWN) Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's claim of Mullaperiyar dam currently not being in danger has come under heavy criticism with social media flooded with a 2011 video of him demanding replacement of the 116-year old dam.

He was responding to a question of his party colleague and former State Minister for Electricity M.M. Mani, who is a legislator from the Idukki district where the dam is located.  Soon after his statement, social media came alive and it revisited an event in which Vijayan, the then CPI-M state secretary took part on December 8, 2011.  It was a human chain of lakhs of people in the 208 km stretch from near Muallaperiyar dam site to the Arabian sea at Kochi demanding a new dam as the old one was "leaking".
