The supreme court today asked National Crisis Management Committee and Kerala’s sub-committee to explore reducing Mullaperiyar Dam water level to 139 feet.
The apex court asked Kerala to take appropriate steps while releasing water at Mullaperiyar dam so that people are not affected.
SC asked Kerala and Tamil Nadu to abide by National Crisis Management Committee’s directions on rehabilitation and water level reduction.
SC said it’s not an expert to deal with floods and left it to the executive to contain the crisis. The Apex court also sought a report from Kerala on steps taken on disaster management and rehabilitation measures.
