DMK MP from Chennai Dayanidhi Maran on Tuesday slammed AIADMK-led Tamil Nadu State Government in Lok Sabha accusing it of ‘failure’ over dealing the water crisis issues in the State.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, Maran said, ‘there was a serious water crisis in the state in 2004, the then Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had decided to set up a desalination unit to solve the issues. The then UPA government allocated Rs 1,000 crores for a desalination plant to be implemented in Chennai. But today’s AIADMK government is completely failed to deal with the crisis.’

Further talking about the crisis, DMK MP said, that this time the pre-monsoon rain in the state is the lowest in the last 65 years. Water supply in the four reservoirs supplying water in Chennai has dropped below one percent.

‘The Government is doing nothing as the state is going through a severe water crisis’, he added.

Earlier on Monday, DMK President MK Stalin along with party workers held a massive protest against the AIADMK-led State government over the state’s water crisis. The massive protest was held at State’s capital Chennai where DMK workers carried empty pots in their hands.

Slamming the state government, DMK Chief MK Stalin said the state government did nothing to resolve the problems faced by people with the water crisis. ‘Here are the pots but where is the water’, asked DMK President.

DMK Sriperumbudur MP TR Baalu had on Monday gave a notice in the Lok Sabha over the water crisis of the state.

Tamil Nadu is facing an intense crisis of the water across the state over the last few months as the Chennai’s Porur Lake, which is the main water resources of the state, has now reached to its lowest level. More the delay in monsoon has further worsened the situation.
