New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday issued notice to Kerala on plea of Tamil Nadu seeking execution of its order with regard to maintenance of Mullaperiyar Dam. The apex court has fixed the plea for hearing in second week of July.

Tamil Nadu alleges in its plea that Kerala is not allowing it to maintain the historic dam.

In early April, the Centre had contended before the Madras High Court Bench in Madurai that a public interest litigation petition filed by Tamil Nadu Public Works Department Senior Engineers Association to remove encroachments in the Mullaperiyar dam area could be heard only by the Supreme Court since it involved an inter-State dispute between Tamil Nadu and Kerala, The Hindu reported.
