Supreme Court Mullaperiyar dam in Kerala

Supreme Court to hear a plea raising safety concerns about the Mullaperiyar dam in Kerala, a longstanding dispute between the States of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Senior Adv Shekhar Naphade for Tamil Nadu: we have received something today morning from other side. We have not taken a look at it. Can the hearing be tomorrow

Sr Adv Jaideep Gupta: We had to file last two affidavits as some pleadings were made earlier

Justice Khanwilkar: once we start other matters it may take some time

Naphade: others are not so heavy

Justice Khanwilkar: This is misleading information (laughs)

SC: We are not issuing any notice in any matter. We will consider broad issues in the lead petition itself

Adv VK Biju: But what if it is not listed tomorrow?

SC: We have to accommodate if they have problem on other side

Supreme Court adjourns to tomorrow the hearing in the Mullaperiyar dam dispute case between Kerala and Tamil Nadu, after the counsel for Tamil Nadu sought time saying that Kerala has filed new affidavits today morning.
