'Thermocol idea was of an engineer's not mine' says TN minister who became infamous 2 yrs back

TN Minister Sellur Raju says he became infamous all over the world because of 'Thermocol idea' that his engineer gave to prevent evaporation of water from the Vaigai dam 2 yrs ago. The rain harvesting scheme by late CM Jayalalitha was criticised by the DMK before winning people's approval. He then tried covering a part of the dam with Thermocol sheets but the idea flopped as the sheets were swept away by winds.
