Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : PMK president, G K Mani and party youth wing leader, Anbumani Ramadoss were among about 200 party workers arrested for attempting to cross over Kerala protesting against construction of a check dam across Bhavani River, threatening acute water shortage to three districts in Tamil Nadu.

Holding placards cautioning Kerala against constructing check dam, the party workers, led by Mani gathered at Anaikatti on Tamil Nadu-Kerala border and raised slogans against Kerala, as it would affect water supply for both drinking and irrigation purpose in Coimbatore, Tirupur and Erode districts.

As Anbumani, MP, along with some farmers, affiliated to the party, attempted to cross over to Kerala in a procession, over barricades, police, deployed in large number prevented them near checkpost and arrested.

All the arrested were kept in a nearby marriage hall, police said.

Some 700 workers of all political parties and organisations were arrested four days ago for trying to cross to Kerala to inspect the site where the dam is being reportedly constructed.
