The Tamil Nadu government on Thursday moved the Supreme Court accusing Kerala government of whipping up "fear psychosis" on Mullaperiyar row and sought the court's direction, restraining the state from making any controversial statement on the issue.

In an urgent application to the apex court, Tamil Nadu alleged that Kerala, despite a status quo order by the apex court, was making public statements on issues of pulling down the century-old dam and constructing a new one in its place.

According to Tamil Nadu, the statements emanating from Kerala were "creating deep rooted animosities" between the people of the two states and posing grave threat to the peace and law and order situation in the two neighbouring states.
