The Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh has written to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha on Mullaperiyar issue.
The prime Minister's letter to Jayalalitha is as follows:
" I have received your letter of 29th November, 2011 as well as your earlier letter on the Mullaperiyar dam issue.
I have made a note of the points raised by you and also heard the issues raised by a delegation of Ministers from the Government of Kerala. I have pointed out to them that the matter is currently before the Supreme Court Empowered Committee. I believe that nothing should be said or done to create undue alarm among the people. I am sure that, given goodwill on both sides, an amicable and mutually acceptable solution can be found through a process of dialouge and communication. I have accordingly advised the Ministry of Water Resources to arrange an early meeting between the officials of the two sides to sort out understanding issues and allay genuine concerns.
I look forward to you cooperation in this matter "
