DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Saturday rejected the allegations of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa that he was politicising the Mullaiperiyar dam issue and listed the various steps taken during his previous regimes to settle the conflicts with Kerala government.

Karunanidhi recalled his visit to Thiruvananthapuram as a Chief Minister for talks with then Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan in 2000 and also his participation in a meeting held in the presence of the Union minister for water resources in New Delhi.

He asked the State government to immediately take all necessary administrative steps to raise the water level in the Mullaiperiyar dam since it concerns drinking and irrigation water demands of the people.
