Kerala CM trolled over 'double standards' on Mullaperiyar dam
Kerala CM trolled over 'double standards' on Mullaperiyar dam

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".
