Comply with govt report: NBA tells Maheshwar project
In Madhya Pradesh, Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) on December 24 asked promoters of upcoming Maheshwar power project to comply with the report of Environment Ministry and rehabilitate displaced people before going ahead with the construction work of the project.
NBA leader Alok Agarwal claimed that the committee set up by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests has submitted its report to the the National Green Tribunal stating that no further filling up of the dam can be allowed unless the project-affected people are resettled.
He was speaking to the media in Bhopal. He alleged that the concerned private contractor has failed to release the requisite amount needed for rehabilitation and resettlement of as many as 10,000 families.
