முல்லைப் பெரியாறு அணைப் பிரச்சனை குறித்து பேஸ்புக்கில் நான் எழுதிய ஆங்கில கட்டுரையை இங்கே வெளியிடுகிறேன்...
So, what’s the aim of Kerala? What is the ultimate motive behind this massive PR campaign of Kerala and Malayalees ?
- The lease of the land to Tamilnadu for 999 years will expire automatically with the construction of new dam.
- Tamilnadu will lose its rights over the land to get water and generate electricity
- Kerala can use the new dam to generate electricity to meet its state Demand
Power and Economy are the primary motive behind Kerala's fear mongering PR drive. In this PR campaign Kerala unleashes many fictional stories, such as Kerala's claim that the Agreement of 1886 to give Tamilnadu the rights for 999 years was not a fair deal and it was thrust on it in by the erstwhile British Presidency of Madras on the Princely state of Travancore. Kerala’s fiction is that the mighty British empire forced the agreement on the small Princely state of Travancore. However, in 1970 the Kerala (Chief Minister C. Achutha Menon) and Tamil Nadu governments signed a formal agreement to renew the 1886 treaty almost completely. In Independent India, when Tamilnadu lost its lands such as Devikulam and Peermade to Kerala, it can only be fictional to say the Agreement was forced on Kerala.
May be in 1970 Kerala Politicians did not foresee the Power challenges in a modern World. Since 1970 the demand for Electricity has grown in Kerala and it needs Mullai Periyaru to meet its demand. So, a new Dam is a clever ploy to kick out Tamilnadu and take full control of the Mullai Periyaru Dam
