Why Kerala wants Mullaiperiyar Dam water storage level to be reduced to 139 feet?After many years of cold war between Kerala and Tamilnadu, Supreme Court, after studying the case well, has passed a judgement to keep the Mullaiperiyar dam water level to 142 feet, though the dam has been tested to be fit to store and maintain water upto 152 feet.
What is the reason for Kerala to request Tamilnadu to reduce the water storage level to 139 feet? Tamilnadu has politely refused to yield to the request of Kerala. Kerala has taken up the case to the Supreme Court. How this would help Kerala at this present juncture? What could be the motive and the exact reason for reduction?
