All MPs, MLAs of TN should quit to pressurise Centre for Cauvery board: Ramadoss

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) youth wing president and MP, Anbumani Ramadoss, today suggested that all MPs and MLAs of Tamil Nadu should resign and create a constitutional crisis to exert pressure on the Centre to constitute the Cauvery Management Board.

“I have already suggested that the MPs from both the Houses should tender their resignations protesting against the delay in constituting the board. With further delay all the MLAs should submit their resignations, to create a constitutional crisis,” Anbumani told reporters here at the airport.

Accusing the Centre of deliberately delaying constituting the board, eyeing the forthcoming polls to Karnataka Assembly, he said that PMK would announce massive agitations from March 30, if the Government failed to constitute the board by March 29.

On the letter by DMK working president MK Stalin to Chief Minister Edapadi Palanisamy to convene a special session to discuss the issue, Anbumani said that there was no use by it as the House had met four times on the issue.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was refusing to give time for the delegation led by Chief Minister to meet him on the issue, he said.

About the Bhavani river across which Kerala was constructing a check dam, Anbumani said that the State has already constructed two dams and construction of another dam was reportedly started.

He was planning to visit the site soon along with farmers to know the fact, he added.
