If the Government and the political party wants to serve the interests of the people around the dam area for whom they are shedding crocodile tears, they should find competent experts in the field of earthquake and the structural engineers and form a small committee to go into every aspect of the safety of the dam on priority basis and give their findings. They should also appoint a committee of the bureaucrats to go through the original agreement of the British period and the later one of 1970 by C Achutha Menon, the findings of the central water resources department inquiries, the submissions of the Tamilnadu to the S C and central Government etc and give their opinion as to what is the rights of Kerala and to proceed in the matter. And all the leaders are to shut their rubber mouths.
