Dindigul: Minister KN Nehru has asked that the Azhiyar drinking water project has not been abandoned and how can it be stopped after starting the work at Rs 950 crore.
Coimbatore District Minister Senthil Balaji Dharma has been forced into an embarrassing situation as Minister KN Nehru spoke out against the truth.
The reason is that the farmers of Tirupur and Pollachi areas have been protesting against the project of transporting water from Azhiyar to Otanchatra.
Minister Senthil Balaji’s Twitter account hacked.. Name changed and tweet released!
Parambikulam Azhiyar Protection Movement and Tamil Nadu Farmers Protection Association are strongly opposing the project of transporting water from Azhiyar in Coimbatore to Otanchatra in Dindigul district. In the last few weeks, they have shown extreme intensity in rallying, public meeting and demonstration. Apart from that, they are putting pressure on Senthil Balaji, the responsible minister of Coimbatore district, urging him to abandon the Azhiyar project.
Minister Senthil Balaji
In this case, Minister Senthil Balaji said that some people are deliberately instigating the Azhiyar project while keeping Chief Minister Stalin on the platform who came to Coimbatore recently. But it is noteworthy that the Chief Minister did not give any opinion in this regard.
Minister K.N. Nehru
In this case, Minister KN Nehru, who met the media in Dindigul, broke the truth and said that he has not abandoned the Azhiyar drinking water project and how he can stop the work after starting the work at Rs.950 crore. He said that the talks with the farmers are going on one side and the Minister of Public Works is engaged in the talks.
Let’s make peace
As a result, he has clearly said that he has not canceled the project of bringing water from Azhiyar to Otanchatra. This is intended to encourage the Parambikulam Azhiyar Defense Movement and the Tamil Nadu Farmers’ Defense Association to protest again. Meanwhile, Minister Nehru has also said that measures have been taken to pacify the farmers.
