the proposed athirapally hydel power project is in news again with the proposed hearing of the project by legislative panel has been postponed.

it seems even though detailed steps had been taken for the hearing, 'somehow' the hearing has been postponed.

all dirty tricks is being played by the project proponents in pushing this unsustainable project.
chalakudy river council, which has been in the forefront along with other ngo's, had collected 40,000 signatures to the CM of Kerala on dec 7 requesting him to stop the project.

on the23rd of december it will be the first anniversary of the indefinite Satyagraha launched by local people. you can see pictures of the last year satyagraha below. on the same day this year a large meeting will be held. many solidarity groups are being formed in different districts of Kerala to bring awareness to this fatal project.

whereas the majestic chalakudy river flows quietly. will it be further abused by one more massive unsustainable and ill planned dam?
