At the drop of a hat, they speak secessionist language

Meeting the drinking water needs of Bengaluru and Ramanagaram District is the very basic conception of Mekedatu project. 

As per reports, Secession from India will become inevitable for Tamil Nadu if Karnataka is allowed to build a dam across the Cauvery at Mekedatu, DK leader K Veeramani and MDMK founder Vaiko warned during a DMK-led protest on Tuesday. Speaking at the protest, DMK president MK Stalin said, “I second the views of Vaiko and Veeramani.” If the Centre continues to be “indifferent” to the sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi won’t be able to enter the State, he quickly added. 

With a large number of cadres of different parties present, the protest at the Uzhavar Santhai ground turned out to be a show of strength for the opposition parties. 

“As the lower riparian state, Tamil Nadu has more rights over Cauvery water. If they go ahead with the dam plan, we can’t destroy the dam but we can break India,” said Vaiko. Veeramani said, “DMK founder Anna had said the party would give up the secession demand but also announced that the reasons for secession had been still alive. Even if we are not demanding secession now, New Delhi is pushing us towards that demand.” 

Without naming actor-politician Rajinikanth, CPM State secretary K Balakrishnan said some people claimed that Modi was trying his best to do good. “Is Modi’s allowing a dam at Mekedatu good? Is imposing NEET good?” he asked. 

A special session of the Tamilnadu Assembly will be held on Thursday with a demand to withdraw the Central Water Commission nod to Karnataka on Mekedatu project. It is reported that the MP’s will be instructed to raise this issue in Parliament.
