Title: Need to bring details of contract signed between the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Periyar Maniyamma College of Technology for women in Tanjore Delta in Tamil Nadu.

TEXT :
PROF. A.K. PREMAJAM (BADAGARA): Sir, I thank you for the opportunity given to me to bring a very strategically important point to the notice of this august House through you. It is reported in the Statesman on Sunday that a Women's college called Periyar Maniyamma College of Technology for Women in Tanjore Delta run by a local Trust which is known for its pro-LTTE stance is getting an unwarranted bounty from the Defence Department of the Government of India. This Trust is known for its virulent pro-LTTE stance. In September, 1998, Shri George Fernandes laid a foundation stone for a model house which was designed by the B.Arch. students of this college. ... (Interruptions) But this is not significant when compared to what follows.

Sir, the Defence Research and Development Organisation of the Government of India has granted Rs. 100 crore to this college for 12 projects. An MoU was signed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation in November, 1998. The most interesting part is that very sensitive and very strategic research projects are given to this non-entity which is otherwise unknown and situated in the Cauvery Delta. One project deals with the aftermath of very severe winter and frost situation in Siachen Glacier. It is of very great importance to the Defence Department. I want the Government to come out with the details about this very strategically important issue. The Government should bring about the details of this clandestine contract signed between the DRDO and this Institution which is a non-entity and known for its pro-LTTE stance. . ... (Interruptions) India's national security has become a risk in the hands of this Government.
