PRESS INVITE : August 07, 2017, 3:30 PM at 36, Canning Lane, Delhi*
Exposing Lies of Madhya Pradesh Govt. on the issues of Rehabilitation in Narmada Valley
Today is the 12th day of the indefinite fast by Medha Patkar, Bhagwati Bai, Pushpa Prajapati, Dharmendra Bhai and 8 others at village Chikalda, Badwani, Madhya Pradesh. The fast started on July 27th with the demand to stop filing the Sardar Sarovar reservoir, flooding and forceful eviction without completing the work at 88 R&R sites as per NWDT award.
Even after the Supreme Court deadline has passed the R&R sites remain inhabitable and far from complete as claimed by the MP govt which continues to spread lies and file false affidavits in courts. Some of us have just returned after collecting significant data and would like to place before media the falsehood being spread by the government.
