Activist Medha Patkar opposes the Mekedatu project

Bengaluru: Well-known activist Medha Patkar said that major dam projects will not help the common man in anyway. “It will only cause destruction of the rivers,” she stressed

Speaking at an event on the Mekedatu project and its impact on the ecology, she said that mega dam projects will help the politicians, contractors and the investors. “The international agencies extend financial help to these mega projects. In reality, these projects cause huge damage to our eco system. Mekedatu is one such project,” she said.

She explained how the Narmada Dam projects caused irreparable damage to the ecology in Gujarat and other states.

Actor Chethan Ahima termed the project as the war against ecology. “The parties have waged a war against ecology through this project. It is a pro-contractors project,” he said.

Journalist Nagesh Hegade warned that this project may result in huge deforestation and imbalance in the ecology.
