URGENT APPEAL: Is the GOI Drowning the Narmada Valley to celebrate Modi’s Birthday?

Written by Sabrangindia Staff | Published on: September 15, 2017

WE APPEAL TO THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY TO STAND WITH PEOPLE OF NARMADA VALLEY AND CALL OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES and ask them to immediately stop filling Sardar Sarovar dam till the rehabilitation is complete as per the Narmada Water Disputes Tribunal Award (NWDTA), state policy and many court judgments. Please call to the following contact numbers, email them and held them accountable for safeguarding the constitutional right of life and livelihood.



 
The Narmada Bachao Andolan reports that the lives of more than 40,000 families are in danger as the obdurate stand of the governments of India and Madhya Pradesh have, without providing rehabilitation as per court directives allowed the Water Level to rise to 128.50 meters, Water enters into Rajghat, Nisarpur and other villages.
 
Protesting Villagers –NBA says –are determined, and will not vacate house, ready to get drowned. People of Narmada Valley have challenged the MP Government accusing it of being ‘Dead for the Narmada Valley.’ The  Water released from unfilled reservoirs to fill the Sardar Sarovar, murder for celebrating Narmada Mahotsav and dedicating the Dam on Modi's birthday is shameful tactics amidst upcoming polls in Gujarat.
 
Badwani, Madhya Pradesh | September 15, 2017: In an unprecedented turn of events, Madhya Pradesh Government coercive measures resulting drowning of more than 40000 families living in the submergence area of Sardar Sarovar Dam. Since yesterday, water level is continuously rising and now reached to 128.50 meters drowning Rajghat, Nisarpur and other villages. Water level is continuously rising after release of large amount of water from unfilled dams just to celebrate the Narmada Mahotsav on Modi's birthday. This is nothing but a shameless show of personal obsession by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and disastrous submission by Shivraj Singh Chouhan to the dirty politics supported by Gujarat and Maharashtra Government. Water being released from other dams to fill the Sardar Sarovar, resulting drowning of thousands of families, Houses, bridges, Cattles, trees and large tracts of forest and prime agricultural land.
 
A large number of affected families haven’t received the house plots and compensation entitled to them, thousands of applications remain unheard before the Grievance Redressal Authority (GRA), leaving no options to the families but to protest on streets. 
 
In Gujarat, the work on the Narmada Canals is also not complete and only able to construct nearly 30% of the total length of Canal network, which exposes the claims of Government to bring water to Kutch and other districts of Gujarat. This is nothing but a politics of giving false hope to people of Gujarat to win elections at the cost of life of lakhs of people of Narmada Valley. 
 
This cannot be more shameless act by the elected Government of any democratic country.
