Opening Idukki dam shutters inevitable: Cabinet meet

T'puram: The Cabinet meet presided over by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has decided that the opening of the shutters of Idukki dam is inevitable.The Cabinet decision is a setback to the Electricity Board’s stand that the situation does not warrant the opening of the Idukki dam.The majority opinion at the meet was that the rise in water level may result in other untoward consequences and hence it is advisable to open the dam shutters.The meeting disagreed with the argument to wait until the full capacity of the dam is reached. The Cabinet entrusted Power Minister M M Mani to evaluate the present situation of the dam.
