40,000 families of Narmada Valley still wait justice : Medha

Bhopal : People affected by Narmada dams took out a rally under the leadership of Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Patkar. They demanded compensation for people ousted due to Narmada and Sardar Sarovar dams.

A meeting was also organized on the occasion. Later they also held a demo at Mantralaya. NBA leader Medha Patkar said a meeting will be held shortly. If it is decided to close the 17 meter high gate of the Sardar Sarovar dam then it will be disastrous for the people who will be affected by this.

She said the Supreme Court has given its verdict on NBA petition on Sardar Sarovar. People of Narmada Valley still await justice even after three decade long legal battle. Patkar said about 40,000 families are still running from pillar to post for justice. International Goldman Award winner environmentalist Prafulla Samantra also participated in the demonstration.
