Thu, Aug 16, 2018, 06:30 PM
In the wake of Tamil Nadu (TN) government refusing to accommodate the plea of Kerala government, to open the gates of Mullaperiyar dam and release excess water downstream, Supreme Court (SC) has directed National Crisis Management Committee (NCMC) to submit a report by 2 p.m. tomorrow. The Kerala government has urged the Apex Court intervention in the matter, in view of incessant heavy rains that have led to an unprecedented flood situation in the state. TN government refused to open the dam gates and let out the excess water downstream, as it is concerned about the people living in the periphery.
