NBA to issue legal notice to Rane

MUMBAI, OCT. 3. The Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) has decided to issue a legal notice to the Maharashtra Chief Minister, Mr. Naryan Rane, for his ``irresponsible and highly defamatory utterances'' regarding the Andolan.

The NBA in a release here today said Mr. Rane had alleged at a press conferences at Nasik and Pune recently that the NBA has appropriated land meant for project affected people (PAP) and that there was ``foreign hand'' behind the NBA agitation against the Narmada dam. He had also claimed that the Government had provided alternative land to all Sardar Sarovar Project-affected people in the State and that there was no need for Ms. Medha Patkar's agitation at Domkhedi now, the release said.

Meanwhile, five NBA activists have joined the indefinite fast by Ms. Medha Patkar in north-west Maharashtra today demanding evidence regarding Mr. Rane's charges.

The Government will inquire into the agitation, he had said.

The five activists, who joined Ms. Patkar in the indefinite fast at the district jail, are Messrs Sitarambahi Patidar, Doorsingh Vasave, Dadliya Karbariya, Nahar Singh and Mahadeo Patidar.

The State Governor, Dr. P. C. Alexander, has agreed to meet the NBA leaders here on October 6, the release said.

Ms. Patkar and 384 NBA activists were arrested and put under magisterial custody after they refused to move to safer places from Domkhedi when the backwaters of the Narmada dam threatened to submerge the place.
