We, the people of Tamilnadu kindly bring into your notice the threats faced by our River Thamirabarani, the farmers and the people of of Tirunelveli district due to recent judgement on basis of TN Govt reply saying that only excess water has been given to PEPSICO!!
River Thamirabarani starts in Pothigai hills and ends in Srivaikundam. This is the only perennial river of Tamilnadu. The river irrigates around 120 square kms of agricultural lands in Tirunelveli district and Tuticorin district. It is the only source of drinking water for the people of Tirunelveli district. The people of Tirunelveli considers the river as the mother of all and attaches a spiritual importance to it.
The river is also the primary source of Drinking water for the residents of Tirunelveli district. If PEPSICO uses 15 lakhs of water every day, the people of Tirunelveli will have to beg other districts for drinking water. Can we drink Pepsi every day? We cant.. Many protests are going on against the PEPSICO unit but the management is not concerned about it. So we request you to immediately look into this issue and take steps to stop the setting up of the soft drink plant by the multinational corporate giant PEPSICO and cancel the licenses issued to them by the government. This will save our River Thamirabarani from being destroyed in the hands of corporate giants and will save millions of farmers in our district who are solely dependant on the water. Please take immediate action. Save Thamirabarani, Save Farmers, Save Tirunelveli.
