Kerala repeats contention in project

The federal issue involved in the proposed river interlinking project that has been delaying the project refuses to go away even after the Supreme Court on Monday directed the Centre to implement it in a time-bound manner.

Hours after the Supreme Court’s direction in this respect to the Union government, Kerala water resources minister P.J. Joseph reiterated the state government’s contention to the proposed project.
“Studies have proved that the proposed river interlinking project will go against the interests of Kerala. The state hopes that the Centre will consider the concerns of the state governments while implementing the project,” Mr Joseph said.
One out of the total 30 river-interlinks proposed in the country, the Pamba-Achaan Kovil-Vaippar link in the Peninsular component was proposed in Kerala.
However, the state apprehends loss of water to the state upon the implementation of the project.
