TR Baalu says Tamil Nadu’s water woes will echo in parliament

The recently elected DMK MPs will elevate Tamil Nadu’s water issue in the parliament and ask the Centre to sanction a permanent solution immediately.
DMK Parliamentary Party Chief T R Baalu said, overall state people were suffering without water and Chennai was the worst-hit region. “We will raise the issue in the Lok Sabha at the earliest”, he stated. MP of DMK should demand the aboliton of Neet, and hydrocarbon projects in the delta districts, provide of Tamil Nadu’s to be paid share of Cauvery river in Karnataka, he stated. DMK president M K Stalin had recently stated that before passing declaration on the DMK MPs, people should wait and see as to how they act in the Parliament.
Baalu said, “The opposition has space in a democratic setup. We will use it fully and raise issues concerning Tamil Nadu. We will fight for the promises we gave in our manifesto. If the BJP government does not respond, they will stand exposed.”
Villupuram MP D Ravi Kumar, a VCK leader elected on DMK observed, in the opposition, MPs obtain a better chance to elevate issues.
Former Union Minister of state Pon Radhakrishnan had stated that the 37 opposition MPs from Tamil Nadu should sell their assets to write off farm and education loans of the voters who had elected them.
