According to environment and water activist Himanshu Thakkar, the Pench Water Diversion Project originally started in 1980 was conceived for irrigation for farmers but now the water is to be diverted for that Adani power plant. Though the project got clearance in 1980, the clearances lapse in five years and need to be renewed.
The Secretary of state for Environemnt has not renewed the clearance, but the Government was pushing the acquisition of land for the project, he said. PWDP involves construction of a 51 meter dam on Pench river, submerging 5600 Hectares of land of 31 villages. Acquisition process was never completed since the work didn't start and farmers continue to cultivate , says NAPM. The compensation amount continues Real Ugg Boots Uk Cheap
to be increased following protests in the region since 2004 but farmers have resisted acquisition.
Agitations against both of these project Pench Water Diversion Project (PWDP) and Adani Pench Power Project (APPP), Chindwara has been ongoing in a peaceful manner since 2004. PWDP involves construction of a 51 meter dam on Pench river, submerging 5,600 hectares of land of 31 villages. The work planned in 80s had a onepage clearance from Department of Environment in 1984 (MoEF was not there then) for irrigation purposes. The clearance is not valid and requires a fresh clearance under Environment Protection Act 1986 as well as under EIA notifications, NAPM said.
PWDP today is to be constructed for supplying water to the APPP, diverting water meant for the farmers. This past year KSS along with NAPM met Environment Minister, Jayanti Natarajan , who informed the delegation that no clearance has been granted to the PWDP and underneath the law they are supposed to have prior Environment Clearance. The PWDP will threaten the forests of Pench National Park and Tiger Project too. So, in most senses it makes no sense to be constructing this but even so Buy Supra Uk
MoEF has not taken any action, NAPM said.
