Sources have stated that Tamil Nadu has agreed for talks on reviewing the water sharing agreement under the Parabikulam-Aliyar project or PAP, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told the state assembly yesterday and the neighboring state has responded "positively" to a letter written by Mr. Vijayan to his counterpart, K. Palaniswami, seeking discussion on PAP.
Kerala CM Mr. Vijayan stated that "The state government recently sent a letter to the Tamil Nadu chief minister seeking discussion over the issue. And now, the neighboring state has agreed for a discussion. This is a positive development".
However, Mr. Vijayan said the "violation" of agreement by Tamil
Nadu on release of water under the PAP to Kerala is "continuing".
But, at the same time, due to the Kerala government's repeated and effective
intervention, "the state received more quantity of water during this water
year than what it got in earlier times".
Mr Vijayan said the Central government had said at a recent meeting of the National Water Development Authority or NWDA that any final decision on linking of Pampa-Achakovil with Vypar River in Tamil Nadu would be taken only after Kerala's consent. In the letter, Mr. Vijayan had asked Tamil Nadu to release water under the PAP agreement to tide over drinking water shortage in northern Palakkad district, which is facing an acute drought.
