the athirapally hydro electric dam issue take another saga with the river valley committee visiting of moef visiting the project site.

we had run a campaign to the river valley committee to stop approval for this destructive project.

couple of weeks back, an umbrella of ngo's petitioned the government and gave a press release to stop the project.

this project from start till now has been an abusive one on all fronts namely eia, public participation, openness and honesty, sustainability, etc

no wonder athirapally is a classic example of development gone wrong in india, where brute force bulldoze development is the order of the day - a development that benefits only the elite of india.

(whereas the majestic athirapally falls beautifully unaware of the impending destructing to its soul.)
