Nagercoil: Union Minister and BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) leader Pon Radhakrishnan on Monday stated the political situation in Tamil Nadu now was completely different from that when DMK president M Karunanidhi and late AIADMK leader J Jayalalithaa were at the rudder of affairs.

“The political situation in Tamil Nadu is now completely different compared to the period when DMK leader M Karunanidhi and late AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa were at the helm of affairs,” he expressed to reporters in Nagercoil, without explaining.

He stated present-day political leaders like DMK working president M K Stalin would be “confronted” by the people of Tamil Nadu for “revealing” their interests.

To a question on the hydrocarbon project at Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, which is being opposed by farmers and environmentalists, he stated the Union government was at present conducting only a viability survey.

“People should not thoughtlessly oppose the project without determining whether it would be beneficial or not,” Pon Radhakrishnan stated.

He guaranteed that the Centre would not implement any project that affects the occupation of farmers of the state.

Pon Radhakrishnan recalled the opposition to the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project and stated if it had not been implemented on time, Tamil Nadu would have experienced severe power cuts affecting one and all.

On the Cauvery river water issue, he blamed the DMK for not taking any measurements to build check dams across Cauvery while in power and now slamming Karnataka for its plans to do so across the river in that state.
