Reportedly DMK Treasurer and senior leader Duraimurugan threatened to launch a protest against the supply of water to Chennai from Jolarpettai in Vellore by train. Hence party sources told TNM, however, that this was the Katpadi MLA’s individual view and the Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami had announced that 10 million litres a day (MLD) water would be transported from Jolarpettai in the Vellore district to Chennai by train at a cost of Rs 65 crore.

Moreover following the announcement, senior officials of Tamilnadu Water Supply and Drainage Board (TWAD), CMWSSB and Southern Railway surveyed water bodies in Jolarpettai on Saturday. Surplus water supplied to Vellore through the Mettur drinking water project will be diverted to Chennai according to the plan and the water will be brought to Chennai, treated in Kilpauk and supplied to parts of northern and central Chennai till Triplicane.
