Should Mullaperiyar Dam be under Central Government control?

The Bharathiya Krishak Samaj in its meeting at Tiruchi on Dec 9, 2011, has called upon the Central Government to bring the Mullaperiyar dam and sharing of its waters, under Central Govt's control.  D Gurusamy, President of BKS has  requested a new Central law invoking Article 262 of the Constitution of India.

If sharing of water is considered an inter-State dispute, though the river and dam are located within Kerala State only,  why can't a Tribunal be set up under the Inter-State Water Disputes Act, 1956?
