CHENNAI: Several leaders including PMK founder S Ramadoss, MDMK general secretary Vaiko, and Thamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) leader T Velmurugan on Friday criticised the State government for filing an affidavit in Supreme Court stating that the Mullaiperiyar dam is facing danger from outfits supporting the LTTE. While Vaiko announced a protest in Madurai on July 7 to condemn the State government, Ramadoss described the government’s claim as absurd and said it degraded the supporters of LTTE. Tamil Eelam supporters had raised their voice for Mullaiperiyar more than anyone else, Ramadoss said and sought withdrawal of the affidavit. AIADMK ally Velmurugan said the State government’s affidavit was not acceptable. Tamil nationalist leader P Nedumaran and Naam Thamizhar Movement leader P Seeman too objected to TN’s claims.
